Moment I open up this forum - avast has "blocked a harmful site". Not reassuring.
Will try again sometime :-)

If you have the technical skills install something like VirtualBox or sandboxie and run your web browsing or other activity inside that. Sandboxie redirects all disk writes to a safe area so although the browser thinks it's writing to the usual places on your disk it's actually writing to a temporary area that you can discard after use. VirtualBox goes further: it pretends to be an entire computer, but with the advantage that you can take a snapshot of it at a known-to-be-safe time and then revert to that snapshot if the pretend system gets infected; there's nothing any virus can do to access anything outside VirtualBox.
It's a bit of a pain to set things up in the first place, especially with VirtualBox because you have to create an entire system from scratch, but compared with the pain of having to rebuild a damaged system it's worth the effort.

I wouldn't come on this board again using a windows computer after reading all these horror stories!
