So far I am getting windows 7 professional and microsoft office home and business. I am not sure what to get as far as protection. I know there is virus,malware,spyware. Other than the virus protection, I do not even know what malware and spyware are or mean. Also, I don't know if there is anything else to protect against. Any suggestions on all the sofware I would need would be greatly appreciated. I would need a complete list as I am clueless .lol. I just want my system FULLY protected is all. My hardware costs are around $2000. So I would like to keep cost down but I am not willing to sacrifice protection just to save some money. If I have to spend ,I will definitely pay what I need to, to be sure I am covered. Thanks.
