1.) Lock your computer down & run limited user account
2.) MSCONFIG-->startup-->uncheck almost everything ( i know you think you need DVDauthor pro running at startup but you don't )
3.) Install CLAMwin anti virus (or any "only run when needed" AV ), Scan only downloads/cds/dvds/thumbdrives/attachments
5.) Use firewall if you feel NAT is not good enough.
6.) Backup your essential FILES (word/excel/outlook/pics) to an external disconnected source.
enjoy your new, new computer!
