the best cure is prevention
dont open email attachments
firefox is more secure than internet explorer
i use a plugin for firefox that stops all the scripts of a web page , i just set sites i trust to allow what i want
avoiding all those ads and crap at the sides of most sites
my cookies are turned off most of the time and i delete them if i do have to go to a site that requires them
firefox also tells me if a site is known for clickjacking ( where you are on a page , click the screen and another window opens with a shite site )
but the best thing for me is i dont use windows anymore , im only on linux . i still have avast but only so i dont pass on any virus to another computer .
but sadly theres no one foolproof bit of software that will protect us from everything outside this site . its just a collection of things to help prevent them
