Backup, backup, backup. It is just a matter of time before you lose data due to a virus or hardware failure. Do a backup!!! If your drive crashes and a computer service company tells you your data is gone, I may still be able to get most of it back for around $100.
If your house burns down, are your backups setting next to your computer??? Take a copy off-site (consider encrypting or password protecting them). If you have just a few files that are really important to you, email them to your web based email account (yahoo, gmail, hotmail..) as a backup.
If you have too many files to backup to webmail, try a USB thumb drive. About $15 for 16 Gig. It is quick and easy, but not as good as doing a CD or DVD backup.
Another option is Free Cloud storage. Something like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Skydrive. This is a good way to do an instant off-site backup. Keep in mind this will not protect against corruption, so make copies.
Virus protection. Make sure it is up to date!!! Use AVG, pandasecurity.com, or one of the other free ones if you can't afford to pay for it.
Personal Firewall. XP and newer has one built-in. Make sure you are at least using it or something better.
Automatic Updates. Hackers are constantly finding holes in Windows. Microsoft uses Windows Automatic Updates to fix these holes.
If you receive an email or popup that you did not ask for, don't open or click on it. It is likely to be a virus or someone trying to trick you into giving up your identity.
Check for updates for you software. If a security hole exist, the manufacturer may have an update to fix it.
