I'm keeping these Windows closed, getting bars installed

I got a new Windows machine. It's been a while since I used Windows (never Windows 7). What do I, as someone paranoid about viruses and malware, need to download and set up in order to be 99.99% sure that nothing untoward happens to my machine?

If you'd recommend installing both Avast and AVG, in addition to MSE, for example, I'd be happy to do it.
I'd like to think I'm pretty savvy about clicking email attachments and stuff like that. I'm not so crazy about NoScript, because a lot of times websites just won't load unless I allow exceptions, and I feel like I'm doing that for every website, which kind of defeats the purpose.
If there's a guide somewhere online, or a book, that goes into detail about this, that'd work great for me.
