I also recommend using SpywareBlaster
, a program that restricts the actions of potentially dangerous sites
by adding a list of sites and domains associated with known spyware, advertisers and marketers to the browser's "Restricted Sites Zone". Click on Updates, then the Check for updates
button. If any are found, download them all and click Enable Protection for All Unprotected items
when finished. For more information, see SpywareBlaster System Requirements & Supported Browsers
