As the other poster suggested, install ad block plus 0.7.7.5 and subscribe to one of the ad blocking lists; and install NoScript.
It will take you time to train NoScript though frustrating, it is worth the effort. (I have almost removed it from my computer a half dozen times, but now glad I didnt)
need to utilize some type of spyware protection. Some AVG programs include such. I use XP Pro and Firefox, but I also use CC Cleaner, Ad Aware, and Spybot. Alll 3 programs are safe and free and they immunize your puter.
I know its basic and probably something you practice already, but be sure to defrag and purge your cache on a regular basis.
If you arent allowed to use this software
to protect your puter, then youre out of luck. Spyware including double click is gonna get you. I cant imagine any corporate IT guy having a problem with these programs. They are necessary in todays internet world.
My browser is equipped with security
add ons, I have spy ware protection running, and I can go to any site unhampered.
I wouldnt use IE because it is a major target for all the bad guys and its security
is still suspect.
