This what I use and it has worked well.
1. MSE

3. Windows 7 built in Firewall
Filehippo Update Checker
4. Cclean/Tool Box to check things that might of slipped in. Programs, Startups, Restore points, ect.
NO Torrents
NO Tuneup what ever programs of any kind.
ALL programs on my computers are legal in every way shape and form. Some paid for and some free.
