Revision Update: I have edited some text and fixed a broken link.
There are many websites on the internet that are there to do harm to your computer/ laptop. These websites can infiltrate some nasty adware, malware and trojans viruses into your computer/ laptop. It is recommended that you install some very cool plugins on your browsers apart from the already installed anti virus, security software and firewall in your computer / laptop.
Have a read on one of my post virus hoax about a particular e-mail hoax that has been sent many times to many e-mail addresses.
