    Thats a pretty big question.

    From local or remote threats? Or both? Anything specific where you feel your security may be poor?

    Ill answer based on security for the average home user.

    You have your firewall and anti virus i know.

    You could then add spyware / adware protection, anti trojan software, privacy protection software etc.
