    You are going to need a good Firewall and any of the good AntiVirus softwares . . . These should do most of the 'protection", provided you use the firewall correctly and update the AV weekly or twice weekly

    Not all Firewalls are good. See test results at

    Do a Google search for AntiVirus Comparison (tests, etc) . . Some are better than othrs. . .But one has to update at least weekly, or more often, and always when some new virus is noted to be spreading

    I would recomend a Hardware firewall. Software firewalls are crackable. And some are specifically targeted as some beleive they may have good stuff for just having that firewall. So 1 get a hardware firewall, that you update the firmware.
    2 get Norton Anti-virus. Other Antivirus don't seem as good.
    But these are just my opionons.

    I will second that opinion on hardware firewalls however just because u have a hardware firewall doesnt mean you can become complacent hehe. Paranoia is a controlled skill :p -- its needs to be practised!

    Paranoia is a very good thing. I am one of the most paranoid people, also as I have been told this.
    So an other way to answer this is that you never will have protection, but there are things you can use to make you feel safe. ie antivirus, Hardware firewalls, and Spybot programs. Spybot search and Destroy is good for this.

    And always, always, I cant stress this enough, make sure you pack C4, poison, at the bare minimum 1 sidearm and a change of ammunition as well as an airstrike marker. :p
