Does malwarebytes prevent hackers ? No

1. Install just one anti virus.
2. Download windows security updates.
3. Turn on windows firewall.
4. Never log on as an Administrator.
5. Regularly scan your computer with an antivirus.

+1 to the above. Spybot search and destroy is another good one to add in as well. If you are really concerned, grab a free firewall program like zonealarm. I personally like pc tools firewall plus. You can teach it what programs to allow and what to block.

He means create another User account (with limited privileges) for surfing the web so when you do get attacked your system is safe from being altered with admin privileges.
In other words damage control.
