    I still believe the best trick to preventing problems like this is having adequate anti-virus and anti-spyware applications. Avast doesn’t get the job done and AVG-free only gets the jobs done most of the time. However, if you’re heavily involve in online networking, You’re best option is to pay for your protection. Not trying to spam you, but a company that’s been making solid products lately is ParetoLogic Inc. This company offers software that covers almost any problem you’re going to have. I left a link to a list of their products as my website in this post. Check it out.

  6. Facebook Virus
