The first technique might be lightly neutralized: you must only visit web-pages that are fully trustworthy, and appear on the first positions in the search results. In addition, listen to the warnings of your anti-viral tool and browser. To protect yourself from the infection via the second technique, you should attentively supervise the installation of all programs. Bundled installation method is based on user's trustfulness and the harmful habit to click OK before you read what you are agreeing with.
