this thread needs to be unstickied and a new one for 2011 be made.
firewall = comodo firewall (it also has a sandbox too)
antivirus = malwarebyte's antimalware + microsoft security essentials + superantispyware and anything else that is highly reccomended.
browsers need to be here now too, as so much dangerous stuff is coming through them now.
if running firefox install noscript + ghostery + betterprivacy.
security is hardware software and wetware.
we are 70+% water.

I use Sandboxie right now to make sure I don't accedently pick up something on the internet. What it does is forms like a barrier btwn you and the website you are looking at. And if it tries to attack you Sandboxie will tell you immedietly and prevent it.

I don't know what you are expecting, there are entire books about computer security. Do you really want that in a single topic? Nobody would ever read that. I actually think many people won't even read this one and just think tl;dr, it seems a bit oddly structured too (kinda bad text formatting imo).
But yes, there's a few missing things, also I wonder why AV products are recommended, but not entire security suites. On the other hand, I'm sure you're welcome to go ahead and write a guide yourself.

The best defense against viruses is a good anti-virus program. These programs have a list of virus definitions which they compare scanned files against. If any part of the file's code matches a definition, it is flagged as infected. For more info on how Anti-Virus software works, click this link. You should run a virus scan on your PC every three days or at the bare minimum, every week.
Free anti-virus software:
-AVG antivirus software
-Avast Antivirus Software

Also, the section on social engineering needs be expanded/written. This is probably the most common threat.

You should add ComboFix to the list of Tools.
Description from the website:
ComboFix is a program, created by sUBs, that scans your computer for known malware, and when found, attempts to clean these infections automatically. In addition to being able to remove a large amount of the most common and current malware, ComboFix also displays a report that can be used by trained helpers to remove malware that is not automatically removed by the program.
Please note that running this program without supervision can cause your computer to not operate correctly. Therefore only run this program at the request of an experienced helper.
