Can someone please confirm that these methods are still those recommended despite the improvement in other security methods.

Yes that still looks pretty good, if complex. Have a read at the stickies at the top of the "Virus help and InfoSec" froum which will give you a better understanding of security and what you should do about it.here

It was as much the advice to prevent javascripts running that I wondered about, and the attitude to HTML is positively medieaval. If your other security is up to date and running and you are careful where you visit, then I would have thought the advice on those two subjects is enough to uneccessarily scare the bejasus out of ordinary web users.
