Users can prevent most malware by using safe computing practices.
They can avoid opening email attatchments, stay away from peer to peer file sharing websites (Kazaa, Limewire, etc.), use a simpler web browser like Firefox, click NO when a dubious web site wants to install software on their computer, and keep Windows up to date by patching regularly with Windows Update.
Safe computing is enhanced by Technical solutions.
A broadband router will stop unsolicited traffic from the Internet and hide your computers inside a hardware firewall. Antivirus software will protect against known malware and attempt to stop what it interprets as virus-like behavior. Privacy and content filtering services such as iPhantom bundle corporate level IT experience and technology into a hardware solution for the home or business. Having a reliable backup system in place removes the drama and "excitement" from a malware outbreak. Virtual private networks can ensure security while allowing remote users to access network resources as well as securing unsecure transmission over public Wi-Fi networks.
