install the WoT plugin from FF to avaoid sites that are malware infected or even send them out themselfs. also i´d recommend you to install at least some free AV better buy a well known AV like norton , G-data or kaspersky !

I use both Web of Trust (WoT), which Roni mentioned and AVG's internet security which scans pages on Google. WoT has a way better detection rate.

You could also use something like URLVoid to check sites before visiting, but WoT is a lot easier and faster.

Yea I've been getting these attacks lately aswell due to that I got no anti-virus programme installed on my laptop. I've installed AVG now though and that WoT too and it seems to work fine now.

Stay safe y'all!

Wow, I installed this WoT for my Firefox and it is really good.
It reports UnrealSoftware.de as "Excellent".

Hmm. Just for extra safety measures I recommend the use of NoScript(a firefox add-on). It will help you spot dangerous scripts and dangerous objects and disabling them to ensure your safety, it's great against any kind of attacks especially clickjacking. I deeply recommend NoScript, but it has it's downsides though in example you have to manually determine what site is good there's when WoT comes in, it's a great way to determine that as you allow the pages that you visit using NoScript.

@Zeroarcanus, Do NOT use [2] Antivirus programs.

They will conflict. Just stick with One and with that One antivirus, add some anti-spyware and malware programs.

And yep, My World Of Trust- maybe adblocker too.(add-ons)

Don't use more than one Anti-Virus, I had to reboot my computer just for that.

After each such incident, scan your computer with Norman Malware Cleaner; search strange/unknown folders in Program Files folder and unknown processes in Task Manager, if you have no good antivirus software B)

Done hes crewed his pc up..Just like i did oncelol..
See he didn't reply since that post
Bro if you came to this post from another PC then YOU MUST DO THIS :
You have two antiviruses that now conflict every time you startup you're PC. You must get rido of one:\\

Reboot your PC in safemod:
-When you restart your PC you have a black screen with white writingin it, choose safemode or press F8 then safe mode.
-when you've booted into ssafe mode,every looks like windwos 98/90. that's normal.
-You must then unisntall one of them from or the executable or control panel.
Then reboot windows normally.
Goodluck:/

That's what I was wondering as well.

I tend not to go on most flash game websites as often because I've been attacked by viruses as well. I think I managed to get them from an advertisement using a script or the actual .SWF folder (flash game) containing a virus.

Speaking about flash games sites, do not ever play on those simple ones like "Fun Games Flash Games Cool".
Play on trusted and popular websites (check with WOT).

I recommend:
- Kongregate
- Armor Games
- Bored.com
- AGame
