What computer security do I need?

My windows live one care subscription ran out and I can’t remember my id or the password. It said they are not taking new subscriptions when I tried to get a new id. What is something similar or do you have any suggestions as to how I can find my id. I tried going to “help” for my id and password, but that didn’t help at all.

    Windows live one care was replaced by Microsoft Security Essentials

    When you surf the net unprotected,this is what you get:viruses,trojans,malware,spyware,smit… a bunch of other crap.To protect your PC you’ll need several pieces of security software programs.The ones listed below are free and many out perform some paid security suites:
    1 a firewall (install only one)
    2 an anti-virus (install only one)
    3 an anti-spyware/malware (install two or three)
    4 a secure browser
    5 a disk cleaner (deletes temporary files,cookies,etcGet one or two)

    Free firewalls:
    Comodo Internet Security (just the firewall and not the anti-virus,unless you want the full program)
    ZoneAlarm
    PC Tools Firewall Plus
    Outpost
    Online Armor

    Free anti-virus:
    avast! Home Edition 4.8
    Avira AntiVir Personal 9
    AVG 9 (use Threatfire with this program to increase your level od detection)
    Panda Cloud Anti-Virus
    Microsoft Security Essentials

    Free anti-spyware/malware:
    Ad-Aware
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
    Windows Defender
    SUPERAnti-Spyware
    Spybot Search and Destroy
    Spyware Terminator
    SpywareBlaster

    Browser:
    Firefox and load it up with McAfee Site Advisor,AVG Link Scanner,or W.O.T.(Web of Trust).Also get BetteryPrivacy,Ghostery, TACO (Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out),KeyScrammbler.Set Firefox to delete cookies when you close the browser (Tools,Options,Privacy,Cookies).NoScript is also available for Firefox. If you get AVG as your anti-virus,there is no need to get the AVG Link Scanner because it is included in the program.

    These are free for personal use and you can download them at CNET http://www.download.com
    Some add-ons for the Firefox browser are available at http://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/

    Disk cleaner and defrag utilities:
    CCleaner ,Glary Utilities,and Advanced SystemCare ; all free
    Get it at CNET http://www.download.com
    Also get Smart Defrag and run that in Deep Optimize mode

    clean and defrag for a fast unclogged OS

    Make sure you properly uninstall Windows Live One Care before installing a new anti-virus.If you do it improperly,you will not be able to install another anti-virus. To do this,I would install Revo Uninstaller and run the uninstaller in the Advanced setting.Before you uninstall Windows Live One Care,you must disable it/shut it down.You right click on the tray icon and choose the option that is listed to disable it.Open Revo,click on the Windows Live One Care icon,click uninstall,set to Advanced and run the program. Sometimes,during step one,it may ask you to restart your PC,DON’T because Revo hasn’t finished.Click no to restart and go to the next steps and check and delete every thing it finds in each step.After Step 3 is complete,then restart your PC. Revo is also available free at CNET.
