While running vista I had my pc taken over by a couple rogue anti-virus programs...so i finally made the jump to windows 7 and had been clean for a good 3 months. However yesterday i got hit with "anti-spyware soft." I cleaned it up today but I'm wondering whats the best way to prevent my pc from being hit with these rogue programs... I keep auto-update on, Adobe Reader & Java are both up-to-date (i think they seem to exploit Adobe somehow to infect pc's), I use AVG's free version & just added MalwareBytes too
In short, I was wondering if un-installing Internet Explorer would help since once the programs do find a way in they use IE to connect to the internet...
Any suggestions??????????? Thanks in advance.
