Just the basic protection, please!

I'm beyond confused about which types of protection I must have for my desktop PC. Can someone provide a *simple* list of the most important security I need? (i.e. firewall, anti-virus, malware, phishing, spyware, etc) The simpler the better, please, as I've read so many posts discussing everything from anti-banners to clearing browser history, that I just give up. So, this time I'm writing my own post, just looking for a short list of the crucial software. (For example, if my computer were my apartment, I would know to get locks on the doors and windows, install a fire alarm, and use surge protectors for my electronics. Period. I think.)
P.S. I have both Kapersky and Winzip Utility Suites, and don't know whether I need both. Thank you!
