I swear by ESET Smart Security. with the firewall set as interactive. It's a bit of a pain in the beginning as as every attempted connection in or out is flagged until you allow it. Even your browser of choice has to be given permission but you can set it to always allow, same with windows updates and any software you have with auto-updates etc, but once you tell the firewall to always allow it will never ask you again.

Back that up with Malwarebytes and Spybot Search and Destroy and you have a pretty good security system. Nothing is ever 100% though and you should always be aware of the links you're clicking on.
It should be but there are quite a few who are incredibly naïve and stupid when it comes to online security.
