I recommend, to add the services.msc to disable , remote registry and other security risks like remote desktop, secondary login.

The ones mentioned aren't AV's ( I mention 2 AV programs near the end), they're Anti-Spyware/Malware. I'd use antivirus and antispyware program.

I've got some stuff about virtual memory on slower computers to add.

The title should be

"How to maintain a healthy Windows System for Noobs"

If you have used them long enough you already learned those, many times the hard way.

True, but it just sounds slightly harsh - don't want people turning away.

that guide was great..although i knew a fair bit of it, its always worth reading that kinda stuff...and like someone pointed out, how to optimize your system ie virtual memory and stuff like that would be great....

also outpost is a great firewall, i use it at home but isnt too good for networked pc'as it it was blocking certain things that i needed on the network

thanks for the tips on avast...im currently using AVG but seems like avast could be my next move

I need to update it, I'd now recomment NOD32. :p

Also, I've never used Outpost I'll try it out.

Thanks, and sorry. You have to pay for spysweeper, there is no free version aside from the trial. It's a typing mistake.
