First of all, as promised in the video, here is the links and descriptions for the Firefox addons that we discussed.
2. AdBlock Plus - The AdBlock Plus Firefox add-on says what it does, does what. AdBlock prevents most advertisements from loading -- especially Flash ads and those layered takeover ads that slow your page loads down -- including all the tracking cookies most ads slip into your system. Even if you aren't paranoid about data-snooping, AdBlock will noticeably speed up your surfing.
5. NoScript - JavaScript makes a lot of interesting functionality possible on the Web -- including nefarious clickjacking attacks. The NoScript Firefox add-on permits only JavaScript from trusted domains to run in your browser, preventing any unsavory functions from occurring behind the scenes.
6. BugMeNot - It seems every site on Earth wants you to create an account to view their content these days -- mostly so they can track your surfing (even offsite) and sell your data to advertisers (as in spammers). The easiest way to avoid this constraint is the BugMeNot add-on, which provides anonymous credentials for most major sites, allowing you to login without creating or using a "real" account.
8. Beef TACO - The Beef Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-out (TACO) blocks almost every type of tracking object from settling into your browser. If it's designed to report your web activity to dataminers or advertisers -- including the big dogs like Google, Facebook and Yahoo -- the Beef TACO swats it away. Combine this with BetterPrivacy and you'll be an ad-free phantom in no time.
9. Torbutton - For those that don't know, Tor is a proxy surfing service that prevents even your ISP (or employer) from knowing exactly what web sites you're visiting. The Torbutton Firefox add-on makes using the Tor service dead simple, which is a good thing given how easy it is to turn proxy-configuration a tangle of confusing options. If you want absolutely nobody to know where you've been online, the Torbutton is the place to start.
 
10. hideBad - Sometimes the biggest security or privacy threat is the one that's right over your shoulder -- literally. The hideBad Firefox add-on offers a browsing panic button that instantly closes every open tab in your browser (while saving the data so you can restore the session later) and replaces them with your homepage. It stops snooping eavesdroppers (and dangerously curious bosses) from knowing which web pages you were just surfing, which may be the most important security measure of them all.
Ghostery
It keeps an eye on the websites that are keeping an eye on you i.e. it finds out that which web sites which are tracking you and would alert you about the same.
Panic – Panic allows you to instantly close all the open tabs and replace it with another tab of your choice. So next time while you are on facebook and your boss drops to check in just hit Alt + ` and you would be taken to predefined page in no time.
WOT – We all know about the threats which surfers suffer like viruses, spywares, adware, malicious spam, phishing etc., but here Web of Trust comes to rescue. WOT warns you about risky websites that try to scam surfers before they enter in them using a safety rating of 21 million websites, WOT combines evidence collected from multiple sources. Not only does it help surfers but also sets a protection level for children by blocking inappropriate content.
NoScript – An absolute must have security addon for your browser. NoScript gives you the power to specify the sites you trust and only those sites will be allowed to run active content like Javascript, Java code and other executable code. The addon thus protects you from cross-site scripting attacks and clickjacking attacks.
BetterPrivacy – Now you don’t need to worry from anything like “˜you are being tracked..!!’ BetterPrivacy is a Super-Cookie Safeguard which protects from usually undeletable Flash-Cookies. It blocks long term tracking on Google, YouTube, Ebay to name a few.
 
Ghostery – It keeps an eye on the websites that are keeping an eye on you i.e. it finds out that which web sites which are tracking you and would alert you about the same.

Malwarebytes
Avast-
What separates this program from the other major players, such as, Norton and Mcafee is it features and ability to protect your computer. This is the only program to offer a boot time scan. The others claim to but don't. This is important because viruses and malware hide behind the O/S (windows) and cannot be detected while windows is booted up. Avast also protects against websites and email.

Spybot Search and Destroy
Did you know?
Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies.
Did you know?
Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a threat not always detected by common anti-virus applications.
Did you know?
Spybot-S&D can also clean usage tracks, an interesting function if you share your computer with other users and don't want them to see what you have been working on.
I am including this Tune up software because it has security built in. It does speed up your computer but furthermore, it scans your computer for security vulnerabilities.

Advanced SystemCare Professional, award-winning flagship product of IObit, is recommended most often by IT experts and editors around the world.
