The "website" technique can be easily avoided: you should only visit websites that are fully secure, and appear on the first positions in the search results.

To guard yourself from the penetration via the second method, you should attentively supervise the installation of each program. This technique is based on people's credulity and the pernicious habit to click OK without reading. The installer is changed to offer you to install extra software except the one that you wanted.
