Also make sure active x scripts ask for your permission before running. Tons of spyware/viruses are available on myspace.
AVG doesn't do a firewall. I'd really recommend having someone that kind of knows what they are doing setup a hardware one through a router as well as using the one built into XP/Vista.
You'd also probably be way ahead by pulling your hard drive out and having someone scan it with a clean machine. I can't count how many machines I've had to eradicate viruses from this way. It gets annoying waiting 30-40 minutes for an antivirus program to install and having to run it for 4-5 hours on an infected machine.
