For windows users:
1) Turn off all networking except TCP/IP
2) A good third party firewall, Kerio, can still be
found on download sites
on XP, the included firewall may be good enough.
3) Use a safe mail program like Pegasus
you don't like Thunderbird?
4) Stick yourself behind a router
5) Don't use HTML mail
6) Use a safer browser like Opera or (slow) Firefox
FF is free- don't know about Opera

AVG's anti-virus is pretty good, but will be obsolete
soon, as the mutating virus is too common these days.
?? Is AVG not being developed? They have regular updates.
How about ClamWin - that one is open source and free.
If you become repeatedly infected, use Virtual PC to
install a second copy of Windows within Windows, and
do all your browsing there
That works. For another approach, download VMware's VMware Player, and the "browser Appliance".
That gives you a Linux sandbox to browse from that can't be easily hurt.
(nothing running inside Player can alter the file what was launched to create the VM, so next time you run it, it is intact)
All Free.
