I have a stressful number of bitcoins now. I want to spend some but I'm too scared to type in my password. How can I keep these things secure? Srsly?

What password are you talking about?  You don't need a password to spend your bitcoins...  Are you talking about your address?  Please be more specific or people won't be able to help you out.  And if you mean your private key, NEVER EVER EVER post that thing ANYWHERE!

Take out your hard drive, create a live-cd of a linux distro and boot from that.  The first step isn't really necessary, but it might help peace of mind.

Use Armory and take the private key offline.

If you are using Kaspersky Anti-Virus, then you can use the virtual keyboard in it to type anything without worrying about the key-loggers.

if you know the private key (because its only on paperwallet format) and not already in a client. or if funds are in a client then send all funds to a paperwallet (created using strong random phrase). of course double check all funds, including the 'change' funds have moved to the paper wallet. and triple check the spelling of paper wallet privkey.

then wipe your computer back to factory settings or use a linux based OS then install the legit bitcoin client.

never downloading torents or other programs from people/sources you dont know.

i personally have a Raspberry Pi that is my wallet. i only plug it in to send funds to another address. far cheaper then buying a whole new PC to use purely for fund storage.

You should send the private key to me and I'll help you guard it.  How much BTC are we talking?

Well if you trust Kaspersky to check your pc for Viruses, you can also trust their virtual keyboard to not do wonky shit.

If you have so many bitcoins in one wallet, that you don't dare touch it... something went wrong... create multiple wallets split stuff up. Much safer typing in the encryption password on a wallet that has 1 btc than that has 1000 btc. And paper wallets, they are key.

Use Bitcoin Armory:

https://bitcoinarmory.com/

The access to spend your coins is never exposed online by using their offline computer option. You use two computers, one normally for the Internet and one permanently offline which holds the private keys to your coins. Even if the Internet connected computer gets a virus your coins are safely locked on the offline computer. Also print out a paper backup.

This is actually a brilliant idea. Might do this myself. Gonna look into this as I was thinking about having one PC just for my bitcoins and nothing else.

For that he needs to buy an extra computer, and an extra printer. I suggest using the Blockchain.info wallet with 2 passwords and 2FA. As safe as it can get.

or you could buy a cheap hard/SSD drive and plug it in and out when you need to access your coins.

what you can do: learn more about security. buy a new laptop. do only BTC trading with it. use linux. sent only small amounts to the exchanges. sell/buy your coins.
