I have an authenticator, picked one up even though I haven't been hacked. I figured that spending six bucks was a hell of a lot better than dealing with everything that comes with being hacked. @_@I also run Microsoft Security Essentials, a free antivirus/antimalware that a friend of mine who's a real computer guru recommended. It's worked out very well for me and isn't a resource hog; I'd highly recommend it.

MSE's definitely one of the best AV/Anti-malware pieces of software on the market. I'll second the recommendation, if you don't use it, you should.And yeah, I second the authenticator thing too. Never was hacked myself, but after seeing several people I know get hacked, I decided it was worth the $6.

Seconded on MsE. Although I had been using AVG for years and never seemed to have a problem. I made the switch after reading about it from users on here actually. Did some research and asked around. It's been great so far. I also use Firefox for web browsing. Another thing I did was a while back changed my email for battlenet to a totally new and exclusive account just for them. I would also recommend any time you enter an important password (or use a credit card) I would wipe cookies and delete temp files. Yes I am paranoid but no I haven't been hacked. (knock on wood!)
