As a general rule, you may want to run Spybot or Ad-aware and Norton once a week. Unfortunately my job requires me to be up on all the latest virus/malware outbreaks and while for a normal user this might be a paranoid approach, once a week has kept my machines all up and running smoothly. When you got your computer, did it come with Norton already activated or just installed? Some comp. manufacturers install anti-virus software (McAfee or Norton) but you have to fork over the bucks for it to actually work properly (quite the racket if you ask me)
