Protecting your computer can't be answered with one issue.

As you can see in my url below there are at least 7 different issues, where you should decide 1 of each, or else you does'nt protect your computer at all.

The reason is, that the many different programs not always protects against each other, and each of them does'nt protect equally.

It's very important, that you study all of these issues in my knowledgebase (some of them are freeware):
http://www.tryware.dk/English/Knowledgebase/HowToProtectYourComputer.html

BTW: I'm using the Trend Micro virus-suite, and SoftScan , and haven't got any of my servers or computers infected the last 4 years.

You've been infected with a trojan called Regldr-a

"Troj/Regldr-A will also set the registry entries listed below to point to the page secure.html located in the default Windows folder. This HTML page claims that the system has been compromised by spyware and prompts the user to visit the URL http://www.privacyoutpost.com/enter.html?wm=dkvage."

This is how to remove it:
