What is the best way to protect computer from viruses?
Is there a way to tell which web sites are potential for infecting with a virus? I have a program installed, but hearing info that it may not really be doing what I think. Is it better to suscribe to a program with a certain ISP that scans email rather than purchase a seperate program? Is a firewall necessary? If so, which if any exclusions should be listed? Please advise.
