Hi, WOT, McAfee SiteAdvisor, AVG SafeSearch, etc can give you a good second opinion on an unknown website. There have been many times when I stumble upon a sketchy looking online store with very good prices which I believe to be scams. A quick google search or look at the WOT bar reveals that these sites are indeed legit. However, there have been cases with companies using tactics to get a green WOT rating by cheating the system basically.

If you run a decent AV program, it should block you from accessing malicious sites in the first place (I know Avast does, ESET, Norton, and probably most of the other)

I have to agree that toolbars are quite annoying. Personally, I use WOT, but I generally know if a website I'm about to access is safe (to an extent of course).

For future reference, Avast antivirus (the paid version) has a mode where you can run any of your browsers sandboxed. It's a pretty nifty feature; I know that Sandboxie does this for free, but thought I'd point it out.
