I have opened this thread for those who don't know how to protect themselves from the silent installed viruses while surfing. I have discovered a technique which is working so well for me that I do not use any antivirus now.... The process is pretty unorthodox one seems.. This is how I do it... I do not use IE, coz it is the worst explorer around when it comes to secutity, instead, I use Firefox. I use Flashget as my default dl er. You need to install a Firefox plugin called Flashgot to integrate Flashget in your Firefox. After that, make your default downloading as "Flashgot link".. Now you are armed to protect yourself. If you go to any site which has silently installable Virus, when the virus will try to install, Flashget will open immediately and ask you where to install the virus RollLol: ). Just cancel the job and you are safe! How did you like my technique???? Anybody has any other Ideas????
