For more secure web surfing

As we all know the web browser is the most common target of a virus attack. So the safest way to surf the web is to pick a best browser, but there is no ultimate super technique to find a secure browser; all of have its own advantages and disadvantages. Even though the browser developers have trying to give best security features to their browser in order to fight against the ever growing threats, the following strategies will also help you secure browsing.

One solution is using a limited user account in Windows and uses this user account only for web surfing. If malware get into your system it will not to be able to execute its code, as it doesn’t have the required rights.

You can create a limited user account in Windows through – Control Panel – User Account (detailed procedure for creating limited user account).

Even though limited user account can give a high level of security, this may not be the case always (consider reading this article).

Second solution is of blocking scripting languages. Since most malware are programmed in ActiveX and JavaScript languages, deactivating these scripting languages (especially for unknown sites) in the security settings of the browser will further ensure your security.

Even if you have an antivirus scanner installed, you can also consider installing ThreatFire form PCTools, which is ideal for tracking down malware.

It continuously monitors all files and folders for suspicious activity and sounds an alarm if malware changes the access right or attributes of file or folder.
