The Weapons against Computer Malware

The first weapon against computer malware is operating system updates,because if you don't keep it updated there will be security holes that the bad guys can attack you with. The second weapon against computer malware is program updates, using a free tool like Secunia PSI personal software inspector will allow you to update your programs with ease and its free for personal use, security flaws in software can allow the bad guys to get malware into your machine. The third weapon in your defense against malware will be your security program on a windows machine like my favorite Kaspersky Internet Security, but you should also have a program that will help remove and cleanup any malware that your security program misses because they are not perfect, which I use is MalwareBytes-Anti-malware.
