    It's a combination of a good antivirus, firewall & anti-malware programs. Go with ESET NOD32 + Windows Firewall (default) and Malwarebytes = best security.

    Install a good antivirus on your system & keep it up to date. In my suggestion Avast is the best antivirus.

    I would suggest to increase firewall settings as well as install a anti-virus software.

    in order to increase or improve computer secuirity you have to use a registered antivirus and you need to update it regularly.you should use password so that only you can open your computer.you can also use folder locking software so that virus can not attract.

    Install the best anti virus software, update it weekly once and scan your computer, this will secure the system from virus.
    Use password protections like PC security password to secure from hackers.

    Install Linux, Windows has got many protection holes. If not, use firewall+antivirus. Update your system as often as you get the notification to do so.

    Update your system with a licensed anti virus software. I updated my laptop with Kaspersky antivirus system.
