Ok, I know this is too late, but:
1. On Windows: Never use an antivirus other than Microsoft’s one. All “antivirus”
programs are snake oil, at least buy it from the snake breeder.
2. Windows 7 is dead. Dump it. Nothing you can do will make it safe, Microsoft have abandoned it.
3. Windows is inherently insecure. It will always be. Use Linux if you can, or if you’re wedded to some windows program understand that it’s more “convenient” because it’s full of dangerous security shortcuts.
