  • Search the internet using popular search engines - using obsure search engines may leave you in a lot of trouble with comprimised databases.
  • Never use the word, free, as a keyword - you'll have an unbelieveable amount of illict sites at your disposible.
  • Look at the domain name extension - If the domain extension looks obscure, its probably not somehwere you want to go.
  • Do not download anything from unknown web-sites - if you never saw this web-site before, ask around, or search the history of the web-site.
  • Turn off Javascript - If your allowing javascript to run actively, you may encounter viruses be loaded into memory.
