Protect You Computer From Viruses
When ever you turn your computer on make sure your virus checker/protector is on. This will help your computer so those virus that are embedded by stupid and dangerous people on disk won't get in your computer without your knowing about it. All so people with high speed connection keep your firewall up at all times even when downloading i experienced problems with that like slow downloads but it is worth it because that way i can stop intruders from getting in and viruses

There are also many more way of detecting virii & trojans. You could check for weird active-X controls, fix your browser so evil code from sites and cookies will have a hard time geting into your system, check for strange ports that open for odd reasons.
While your AV will often check for some of these things it helps to give your AV a little support with safe/smart computer checkups and updates.
