The best? Is keeping an eye on what you 'allow' to install with programs. Like you do not need to install toolbars, nor use a websites 'downloader' to download a program.

Malwarbytes seems to be popular. I used to use sypbot, adaware seems popular. AVGFree is ok I believe for adware, malware after accidentally installing it. Like toolbars, uncheck any toolbar, or other offerings like make the program or other your default home page. Uncheck anything you do not want installed, except the program you intend to install.

Browse with a limited account. If your use an administrator account you are more likely to get something you don't want. If you look into web browser caches you
may find what could have been easily launched, or maybe not, under an admin account.

Ok, serious, browsing under administrator account is plain trouble. Wind 10 I believe does not allow you to make an limited account, until you activate it,
maybe I am wrong. But antivirus, limited account, know your download trusted sources, watch for 'special' toolbar and other bundled apps when installing programs. download.com/cnet.com at at time said guaranteed sypware anti-virus free. Where the opposite was true. Some claim that they themselves bundled these into what were clean programs. Let alone, the websites that have you accidentally install, download managers to simply install a piece of software.

how do you accidentally install a download manager?
You're trying to download a file that's usually in an archive. .rar or .zip.
then you install FileName.exe wich is an .exe file, that's a different size that you're trying to download, and usually has the picture of the download manager software in the icon.

Then they proceed with installing SuccerMan Ebig Download Manager and some toolbars. In the end they dont even get the actual file they're trying to download and just think something is wrong with the site. Then go on Quora to ask why is my homepage changed. And they're supposedly computer literate. Idk man I dont use any antivirus besides windows defender and i never had any problems. i just dont see why. The only way to get a virus is to install it yourself.

Win 8, running as user & not admin
Browser as adblock & no-scripts
AVG Free, about to go to Trend Micro
Is it safe enough?

  1. Common Sense, the one in your head.

2. If you are not willing to take the one above, use Avira antivirus.

I also suggest you run your OS off of a Linux OS, specifically something at home, as this seems more of a thing you'd try to do with a personal computer and all that at your own house. Look into it, and run a Linux OS, if you are still worried, look into OpenBSM, very secure OSes, I have just dropped.

If you are not interested in using another OS, with more safety, you might want to regard common sense as one. .exe's off the regular web that seem suspicious usually are, it's not too hard to understand.
