Another important step in securing any computer or device is setting up automated updates. Your device’s security relies on your operating system, apps, plug-ins, and programs always being up to date. For example, using outdated Internet browsers and plug-ins like Adobe Flash, Java, or Silverlight represents a big security problem. There are many websites on the Internet that exploit security bugs in your browser or the plug-ins you have installed.
Another free (for personal use) program to help keep your computer up-to-date is Secunia PSI (http://secunia.com/). I've been using it for years and I am happy with it.
