I have F-secure Internet Security 2010 and it has a browser protection application that indicates whether a site is safe. Is this reliable? Other than restricting my behaviour, what can I do to minimize the risk of malware infection on websites? Thanks for the insight!

Hi and Welcome,

A useful addition often suggested here is WOT (Website of Trust):
From their website "Protect yourself from online scams, sites with adult content, spam and other Internet threats. The WOT community has rated millions of websites so you can search, shop online and surf for fun without worrying"

Hope this is of interest?

Richard
