* You must avoid visiting sites which may contain harmful programmings and viruses., such as-porn sites, gambling sites etc. * Next, you may install a good anti-virus tool in your system- Norton, Kaspersky are few of the good anti-virus software for your PC. * Update your anti-virus regularly because new viruses are being designed everyday. * Run the software and scan your computer time to time. * You may also avoid downloading from unauthentic sources and avoid allowing these sources from making changes in your computer.

Warning! Do NOT use Norton anti-virus on ANY computer WHAT-SO-EVER! If it was already installed on your computer when you bought it (new or used), uninstall it IMMEDIATELY! Norton anti-virus becomes, itself, a virus and will cause a MAJOR registry crash and permanently prevent you from logging into your computer. What it does is it erases your operating system from the hard drive. My source for this answer comes from educated knowledge in the IT industry, specifically Computer Networking and Systems Administration, of which I am currently enrolled in college for, soon to graduate. No, Norton is NOT a "good" anti-virus. It is, in fact, the WORST. If you wish to have a good anti-virus, use VIPRE (no, this is not a typo, that is how the program's name is spelled, look it up), AVG, or Comodo Anti-virus (although, if using this one, use it on a desktop PC, not a laptop. What Comodo is, it is a "learning" AV, meaning you can have it learn your usual web-Surfing routine and block accordingly or set it up to block any potential threat. Having it in Learn state will allow it to block your touch-pad mouse on the laptop, thus preventing you from using it. It blocks the mouse because it does not recognize the driver used for it and thinks it is a virus or other malicious program).
