First and foremost is do not use windows is the best protection.

That being said, if you must use windows then do not use it with an ADMIN 
account. Create another user with user level credentials and use that. 
Malware and viruses cannot corrupt the register if you are not the admin 

99% of all calls I receive for viruses and malware are directly connected to 
the admin account being used for everyday use.

Do the above and use plugins on your browser and you should be fine.
