My mom's laptop
PC Environment: Private
Security Awareness: Basic
Exposure to Malware: Medium
Infection Rate: Medium
Anti-Malware Testing: No
Operating System: Win7, SP1
User Account: Administrator
Real-time Protection: MSE, Win7 FW
On-Demand Tools: SAS, MBAM
Web Browser: Chrome
Extensions and Plugins: Adblock, Ghostery
System Utilities: CCleaner, IObit Uninstaller
Video player: KMplayer
Remote control: TeamViewer
CPU Turion 64 X2 TL-56 1800 Mhz
RAM: 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM
The laptop (Dell Inspiron 1501) is pretty old and slow, however, it does have an SSD drive instead of old hdd
It is connected to the internet through TP-Link TL-WR841N Wireless N 300Mbps Router.
My mom's awareness of viruses is obviously below zero level as, in fact, she started dealing with computers only recently.
I can only manage the PC remotely using TeamViewer.
How can the security of this "dinosaur" be improved without greatly affecting its performance?

One problem: after setting UAC to default level, Skype doesn't login automatically any more at windows startup . I have to give permission to UAC every time.
