I have a single issue that's been vexing me ever since my high school days: Viruses.

These days, I share ownership of a laptop running Windows 7 with my younger sister; as it is, I am responsible for our laptop's security.

That said, I wish to know what the latest viruses targeting Windows 7 are, and how to counter them; that way, I can further improve the security of our laptop.
