I shall leave the more thorough advice to the experts here but, for myself, I have (along with a flock of anti-virus and anti-malware programs running) Sygate FireWall. It's the freeware version and if I even think of going to any site that has danger lurking in it, the program throws up a huge red window saying "Warning!!" and literally bells and whistles go off.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.
While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
