    Hey, I give you best solution for that, the best way to protect your computer from malware is to avoid malicious websites. I know it’s very hard to know which site has malicious programs for that use WOT (Web of Trust) its web tool using this you protect your computer form malware . WOT is a free browser extension that works on both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. When you try to visit a site that has malicious programs will alert you before that and also when you download anything from the internet and this file has malicious programs then also WOT alert you, I think if you want to save your computer form the malicious programs then you have to use WOT tool.

    Yes, WOT tools is better solution for you if you want to protect your computer form the malicious programs. I tell you how to use it, when you try to visit any website that time WOT activated and find if this site try to send malicious programs and also check the extension of the files which you download and suppose it will find any malicious programs in that website or attachment then WOT will alert you after that this is your decision if you visit or download this site on your computer. I think you have use WOT for preventing your computer form the malicious programs.

    I give you some information about how WOT will alert you. When you download the WOT and installed on your computer after that it will activated. When you attempt to visit a site that has suspect content, the extension will alert you before you enter the site or download anything from the site. When you try to visit any site which has malicious programs then it alert you like giving following alert

    o Red: current visited site that has malicious programs and you have to avoid this Sites.
    o Yellow: this site you may avoid this is unconditional it’s all depend on you.
    o Grey: this site is not yet been analyzed. These are sites that could be good or bad; use your best judgment.
    o Green: this Sites that are okay to visit. These sites have absolutely no malicious intent.
