@Greggars,

Some additional suggestions:

  • Make regular backups of your system to removable media: DVD, USB external hard drive, etc.
    Having a total image backup of your system stored on DVD/CD is highly important.
    Get and make use of imaging-backup utilities and save them to offline media. That way you have something to fall back to if another disaster hits.
    Examples of image backup software: Acronis True Image, or the free (for personal use) Macrium Reflect http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.asp
    On some regular schedule, it is a good idea to do an online scan for viruses and malware. Here is a very short list of sites where this may be done:
    ESET Online Scanner
    Panda ActiveScan
    Trend Micro Housecall
    F-Secure Online Scanner
  • MS Online Safety & Privacy Education
  • Never, ever download free games, free tools, videos, mutli-media files or anything free unless you can be absolutely sure the source is safe !

Since this is resolved, I am closing this topic.
