    Re: Secure windows

    Never connect your laptop to the internet, never install applications, never open files from another computer.

    How do you know Avast isnt detecting all threats? If you are sure replace it with another free AV such as AVG, but in general, you get what you pay for

    Use other malware detectors such as Malwarebytes to do extra scans but in general don't install multiple AV applications as they fight with each other.

      No single AV client will detect and delete all threats.

      Personally i use MS Security Essentials, Malwarebytes, Spyware Blaster and Spybot to keep my machine clear of crap.

      I also know what sites to avoid and don't install crap on my machine.

      Leave the OS firewall on.

      Never logon to your system as an administrator.

      Leave UAC on.
