To mitigate issues with trusting updaters I'd recommend using a Firewall and having the default rule be to block out-going connections from unapproved applications. That way if you get a keylogger, the thing it is going to do is not just log your key strokes but it has to send them somewhere. If you get a message that pops up and says "Allow program Xyz access to host 22.214.171.124?" and you've got no idea what that is then you know you have a problem.AVG Internet Security came bundled with a nice firewall and it was preconfigured to do exactly this.
