- add an unprivileged account to use for day to day tasks,
- don't install everything *plus* the kitchensink,
- update software when updates are released,
- don't run services you don't need,
- change passwords regularly,
- harden the machine,
- make backups.

If that's not the answer you're seeking maybe elaborate?
