1. Get a decent, all-around security system

This is perhaps the most basic thing to do. Your security system should include an anti-virus, an anti-malware, along with other security perks from a reliable security provider. It would certainly not hurt paying for this system, but you can get a comprehensive and reliable security system with a bunch of freewares. Just be wary and update your freewares regularly, and never hesitate to change boats if you feel that the program is not doing what it claims to do.

2. Use a keyboard scrambler

A keyboard scrambler is a thing of beauty. In this age of trojans and keylogging software, it is now easy for anyone to see what you type in your keyboard. That includes your username, password, email address, your own address, the password to your savings account, and others. On the other hand, a keylogger's job is to encrypt everything you type right to the deepest corner of your computer. Unless you are being hacked by a relentless and committed hacker, only you can read what you type if you use a keyboard scrambler. Choose the best keyboard scrambler there is out there and remember to update often.

3. Don't get lazy with passwords

A lot of people use the same passwords. It is either they are too lazy to memorize a complicated one or they just don't care. Either way, anything as simple as a good password is a necessary thing to secure you from attacks. There are now a lot of password-generating software that can help you make the most secure passwords. Having problems memorizing your passwords? Put them somewhere offline, in two or more areas where you can access them. Remember to take the recovery questions seriously in case you lose your password. This is the rule in having a stable and secure system: either you have a mediocre password and risk your life, or have a strong password and be protected.

4. Browse anonymously

A lot of software now offer VPN service which allow you to browse the internet anonymously and hide your IP address. Use these software as much as possible, especially when conducting transactions or any other online activity which involves sensitive data. Your ISP can still know what you do, however, but at least you have cross-out a lot of other spies.

5. Be wary of where you go

Browse intelligently. Do not thread where you feel like you are being watched or when you are thrown thousands of links and pop-ups. Don't endanger yourself.
