Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.
Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

i have a question for you. my security is apparently blocking something from Orb netwroks or something like that. it asks if i want to continue blocking, unblock, or "ask me later". Is it safe to unblock?
Hi I am assuming that it is your firewall that is prompting you? Orb Networks is a remote access program that allows you to access your digital photos, music, etc on your home PC on any internet connected computer. Have you installed this program yourself? (this is the website for that software: http://www.orb.com) If so you can allow this program access to the internet as it is "safe".
