What I can do is introduce you to services such as URL Void in a bid to give you some tools to keep your computer out of harm’s way.
Basically, what URL Void does is to take individual URLs and check them for malware. That is, you supply it with the link that you intend to visit and an analysis will be carried out at no cost, and quite quickly.
That’s it, basically. It is a simple service that can help you avoid unnecessary trouble. I think that a service such as this one could use with some bells and whistles like a bookmarklet, or a list of some of the most dangerous sites on the Web. I look forward to these improvements sometime soon.
