Install a good anti-virus software as your initial defense for your computer, I recommend Kaspersky Internet Security 2011. Also be careful on visiting sites for the first time because some of them may have contents that may damage your computer. Same goes for opening files downloaded from the net, you should always scan it first before opening it. And perform regular full system virus scan on your computer. Hope that helps :)

first and foremost,install an anti virus, don't just keep on downloading on the net, avoid unknown downloads or unnecessary downloads

I recommend you get an antivirus program and that you refrain from installing everything you find on the Internet! To keep things clean and in order, try to delete what you don't really need, as otherwise it is going to clog up your new computer! Good luck!

The most usual thing to do is to install a good antivirus, keep it up to date with the lastest virus definition, and setup a good firewall too. I recommend to use Kaspersky, as it is a very good antivirus, and also includes firewall, antispam, and some other features. And the most important advice, take care of what you do with your computer. Think twice before running a program that a "friend" might send by email (most are phising), be careful with the webpages you see, and scan with the antivirus everything before opening.

I think laptop can not be damaged by virus , but the operating system in this can be corrupted. You must be careful while having a good antivirus and update this properly. Scan any kind of usb drive before using this. And don’t go to unauthorised websites.

the best anti virus i can suggest you is avast pro. I think its the best available in the market. I doesn't slows down your system plus removes every virus and also has sheduled boot scan. I have been using this anti virus for almost 3 years and found it the best.

what kind of handle care your laptop... about viruses install antivirus on it, and keep up to date the virus definition files. always scan before installing any programs. usb drives are well known also for infected viruses. just by plugging in a usb drive with a virus will make your laptop infected already.

The best and surest way to keep your laptop out of harms way is to lock it in a cupboard and never switch it on.
