Don’t ever never click on unknown links.

If you’re watching any type of advertisement like (win an Apple iPhone mobile, win a Toyota Corolla Car, Free visa to Malaysia etc.) Don’t click on these types of ads and don’t open these types of links.

If you receive an email that you are lucky winner and you won the lottery. Or in email there is link for sign-up and asking for to get the bonus etc. like this don’t and trust these types of links if you want to keep far from Malware attack.

If you are going to install any Antivirus software in your computer for safety this is a good sign. But remember that always use paid software or Copy of original version. It will be help your computer to keep safe from virus attacks. But if you are using pirated Antivirus software even high profile like. (Antivira, MacAfee, Node32, or Symantec etc.) if these are pirated versions so keep in mind that these are not beneficial.
