    Hi,
    try running MSE and Malwarebytes. This will give you decent protection plus both are free:

    Antivirus clients do come in handy, but really the best antivirus client is the person behind the computer.
    Never download things you dont know about, do your homework and research on what software to install, and beware of emails with odd attachments even from someone you know.
    Avoid strange hyperlinks too, browser hyjacks are quite common as well but can be avoided with knowhow.

    As with everything there are exceptions to that rule and certain security apps do run fine together even compliment each other much like the two apps mentioned above.

    If you don't want to pay, AVAST! or AVG might be an option..

    And a Base Band device is the device that manages all the functions which require an antenna etc.
