Does anyone recommend anything for protecting one’s computer from hacking?  Eset is not very effective.  I have been told that Bit Locker can be effective.  I think something like that would work well that involves encryption.  I have Windows 7.  I have AVG antivirus for security, however I don’t think that keeps out computer hackers.

I use Windows Defender. I don’t use any other antivirus. If possible, upgrade to Windows 10. My biggest concern about hacking comes from the use of WiFi.
