      tbh I don't use anything special.

      Antivirus protection, Fire Fox and common sense. I wouldn't be too worried, a good tip, is look at the URL it is linked to. To do this just hover the mouse over the link and look at what the address is. If say a Paypal link and when you put the mouse over it, it says:

      Code:
      http://45.78.98.54.paypal.capture.com
      it is quite likely it's a scam site.

      There is a thing called sandboxie(google it) you can use. I have heard good reviews about it.

      Personally i do regular virus/spyware scans for peace of mind. Never had many problems.

      Me neither, just anti virus and a software firewall so I can keep an eye on what programs what internet access. The router has an inbuilt one so that gives me double protection with stuff coming the other way.

      Delete all spam mails and perhaps use a filter to stop them getting in your inbox and you should be fine.
