*How To Avoid Getting Infected By Spyware, Trojans, Malware such as Trojan Vundo and Trojan Spy*

1. Be careful opening email attachments

Turn off the feature in your email programs that automatically opens attachments. If you receive an attachment you aren't expecting, do not open it. Before you open any email attachment - even if it's from someone you trust - scan it using anti-virus software. Yahoo! Mail automatically scans all email attachments for viruses.

2. Don't install unfamiliar programs

Always check the file size. If the file size looks too small to be the file you want, then don't install it. Malicious software (like viruses and spyware) often masquerade as legitimate and even useful programs. For example, you might be tempted to download a program that claims to keep your computer clock synchronized with an official clock. But if that program contains adware or spyware, it could also display advertising pop-ups whenever you're online or keep track of where you go on the Internet.
