Protecting Windows from DoS attacks

Can you offer any best practices for protecting Windows from Denial of Service attacks?
There are three things that can help -- patching, hardening and running a network or host-based intrusion prevention system. For hardening, be sure to check out Microsoft's recommended settings for hardening their OSs especially the tips on hardening the TCP/IP stack. NIST also has some good guides for hardening Windows.
