There is a powerful tool from Microsoft, that has not had much exposure in the press. Best of all it's FREE !

Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is a utility that is designed to help prevent hackers from gaining access to your system. It helps raise the bar against malicious malware attacks. EMET anticipates the most common actions and techniques adversaries might use in compromising a computer, and helps protect by diverting, terminating, blocking, and invalidating those actions and techniques. EMET helps protect your computer systems even before new and undiscovered threats are formally addressed by security updates and antimalware software. EMET benefits enterprises and all computer users by helping to protect against security threats and breaches that can disrupt businesses and daily lives. This program does require some advanced configuration and is not recommended for beginners.
