More security stuff:
At the moment, I use Microsoft Security Essentials + MalwareBytes Anti-Malware + VirusTotal Uploader for individual files.

If you've accidentally installed a dodgy toolbar, the Junkware Removal Tool can often get rid of it. Its a command-line application but not that hard to use.
