So, I just recently got on one of my old favorite websites, to realize some scammer managed to infect the site, getting me the virus! Luckily, I got some decent virus blockers and multiple ways to get rid of viruses and thus I was able to get rid of this virus. Which got me thinking "What are 5 ways to avoid getting viruses?"


1. Avoid typical advertisement scams like "You have just won a free <insert expensive thing here>" and others like "You obtained a virus, download <insert dodgy anti-virus here>" they are darn obvious but sometimes you might click one without even realizing it, typical rule is "If it sounds too good to be true, it is too good to be true." and of course avoid advertisements that try to get you to download stuff. The best antivirus is being smart about what you click. If you had issues with double-click like me, you should turn double-click off so you don't accidentally click everything.

2. Get some antivirus software, there are plenty of them out there, take Avast for example.

3. Avoid internet porn in general, the reason is cause a good deal of scammers use this as bait to infect your computer. My roommate Mika got her computer infected 4 times in only a month from this, so I think it's safe to say that these are virus-magnets.

4. Don't watch stuff from illegal streaming sites, stick to Crunchyroll will ya?! Again, people use your favorite shows as bait to infect your computer.

5. Set passwords on everything, period. If you are able to download something without the use of a password, then your computer is not secure enough, by setting something simple as say requiring a password in order to download something can help prevent virus downloads from getting on your PC, sure, some can bypass passwords, but it's better protection than not having one at all!

Though these seem pretty obvious, you don't know how many times people fall for these.....

Damn, why hentai? I fucking love hentai. Although I should start looking for more legal venues to get my uncensored eroges and occasional nukiges.

I see someone is using Python, but I have to ask, where did you declare "suicide"?

Too late.


My computer is filthier than most whores now. I swear I'll get aids sooner or later just by using it.


P.S. This Mika girl sounds like quite the pervert.

As the wise Gandalf once said: "You... shall not... declare suicide!"

You don't have to declare if you call it as your function's parameter.

True, adblock is handy, but I had to limit it to 5 XD

I heard most antivirus software don't work very well and basically just slow down your computer. Although I guess something is better than nothing.

NoScript is great also in combination with adblock.

I spent my 500 dollars to fix her computer up because I didn't want the virus to spread to mine.
