For the past year I have been having more than occasional malware problems which have been difficult to get rid off. Some people have told me to not use Explorer anymore whilst others have said the opposite and I shouldn't use Mozilla. The fact is, even on 'reputable' (whatever that means) porn sites these malware things crop up and there seems to be no way of properly dealing with the problem. Slutloaddotcom is a 'normal' site as is 'spankwire', yet you get problems all the time. Any advices from some IT people here or just practical experience from people?

Use firefox, adblocker, Nod32 for antivirus, and run Malwarebytes, superantispyware,windows defender and spybot search and destroy.They can all be run together with very little overhead and with those nothing will get through.If you are worried about them using too many resources for whatever reason just keep nod32 and malwarebytes on and set the others to scan once a week while you sleep.They can all be obtained allegedly for "test" purposes on torrent sites.

- stop downloading porn - just stream the siht from various websites like youjizz or xnxx

-also as far as browsers go, if you are runnnin a 64bit OS, the only true browser that has 64bit capabilites is IE with the new java 10update

i just installed windows 7 64bit cause my hDD crashed when my computer hit the wall when it fell off the table when me and my girl were have rowdy sex

Doesn't mater if you are downloading files or watching streaming videos.  You are downloading a portion of each page every time you browse.  Many sites have malicious scripts embedded, so you can become infected simply from loading the page.

run your browser in a sandbox.  it prevents drive by installs of malware by essentially quarantining the program you are running so it can't install garbage to the rest of your machine.  a good one that I use is sandboxie.

This shows how big and serious this is getting,it was on the news today in the UK,gangs are employing people to phone you up and paying legit websites to advertise for them,then you unknowingly get this virus.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1329760/Warning-Internet-hacking-gangs-steal-details-selling-bogus-virus-protection.html

Gangsters are tricking worried internet users into buying anti-virus protection that is actually malicious software in disguise, security experts warned today.
Investigators fear hacking gangs are pocketing millions of pounds by infiltrating customers' computers and stealing sensitive banking details.
They said criminals pose as legitimate IT companies who cold call victims offering fake security software that can be downloaded for around £30.
The crooks then combine credit card information from the sale with stolen personal information to defraud the customer or commit further crimes.
Sharon Lemon, who is responsible for fighting cyber crime at the Serious and Organised Crime Agency (Soca), said it is ‘big business’.
She said: ‘In recent cases, we have seen gangs employing 300 to 400 people to run their operations and using call centre-scale set ups to target victims en masse.
‘They can also be paying out as much as 150,000 US dollars a month (on a pay per download basis) to individual webmasters who are unwittingly advertising their fake software - this level of investment from criminals indicates that the returns are much heftier than this.’
The warning came at the start of an internet security awareness week organised by GetSafeOnline.org, which is supported by Government bodies, police and private companies.
Research conducted on behalf of the campaign group found one in four adult web users in Britain have been approached by someone offering to check their computer for viruses.
Thousands of spam emails offering virus check services have also been sent out while almost half (48%) of all web users have seen a pop-up window claiming their computer is infected.
Last month, a computer security expert Matthew Anderson, 33, of Drummuir, Aberdeenshire, admitted being a key member of an international hacking group engaged in a similar scam.
He was caught after an investigation by Scotland Yard and authorities in Finland into a gang, known online as the m00p group, who wrote computer viruses to order that were then attached to spam e-mails
