How do you stay away from dangerous Websites?

What is a dangerous Website?  One that tries to defraud or spread viruses or spyware for marketing purposes.  It is not easy to figure out if a site has evil intentions or not.  Typically, you land on a site and get infected before you realize it.

Two major anti-virus software companies, McAfee and Symantec, are looking to prevent and flag fraudulent sites. 

McAfee’s SiteAdvisor Plus blocks you from accessing sites that contain adware, spyware, viruses, phishing, and even spam.  It is very protective which is good, but a little invasive by blocking access to sites.

Symantec’s Norton Confidential is a better software since it guards you from sites that attempt to steal your information rather than just blocking access to all malicious sites.

Whereas McAfee’s software has an aggressive blanket blocking technique, Symantec protects you for the severe rogue sites and allows easy access to other sites.

Whether selecting software or not for avoiding dangerous sites, just be careful and do not download anything that looks suspicious.l
