install the new Microsoft Security Essentials and use the Windows Firewall and Windows Update and all that crap.

Even then with IE's dismal track record as a malware magnet I would personally buy the longest bargepole on the market and not touch IE with it.In any case other browsers actually do a better job of browsing .Minimum level-use Firefox with the No Script addon plus a decent firewall , antivirus and antispyware programs. These are all available free and do a serviceable job though I would recommend you download Malwarebytes (a top quality program) , keep it updated and run a weekly scan.The free version doesn't give realtime protection but it's as good as you can get.
