Infact just having a clear and fresh install of windows the very first time you connect trough the internet from within the windows installation can already infect you.
About the freshly installed Windows - how can you protect your PC during that process?

I tried to think about the possibilities, but nothing really useful occurred to me (also, I'm not the most technical person in the world).

@Andra Zaharia

Maybe fresh installation without internet connection.
When everything is installed then connect and install some kind of protection (e.g. AV). :)

@Andra Zaharia :

Update all the patches for Windows, that's you're first primary step which no any third party programs yet that can retrieve your connection.

Now the problem arise is going to your browser, well in such theory you may open for any such attacks BUT in reality that's depends.

If you are going to download legitimate application, browsing to social networking sites, and watch videos on Youtube then you are not infected on that case.

Totally untrue you can be completely 100% safe just run Comodo with default deny auto-sandbox everything else but run ShadowDefender first and set the firewall to ask permission for every incoming and outgoing connection and if you don't hit block, well, that's what the VPN is for and oh, use In-Private incognito secure encrypted cookieless browsing, text only and disable file downloads!

Forget anti-keyloggers and keyboard driver encryption, unplug your keyboards and don't even think about using voice input because that's monitored by Google, Microsoft, and the NSA so unplug your microphone too. Just use your mouse and Character Map and paste your text and reverse your mouse buttons and inverse mouse directions until anti-mouse-loggers hit the market.

Also, don't install software: .NET is for Volleyball, Flash is for taking pictures in low-light, and Java should only be in a mug on your desk because after all that, drinking coffee is about all you can do! But you won't get hAxx0rzrz!!1!1!!

@Rolo : Installing .NET is still dependable especially if you are doing programming or install certain apps which that's not totally a problem for that.

Flash player and Java are totally optional too but more prone to security risks than .NET

Nope! Only run software that's written in native assembly!

Since malware can escape sandboxes, I'm working on running everything in the C64S emulator!
