    Do windows update to patch up bugs.
    Install ANY firewall and allow only needed ports i.e. 80 (http).
    Check version of your service programs running and compare with the buggy ones at securityfocus.com .. do updates if needed.

    In general that would prevent many n00bs from h4xXx0r1ng you ;)
