The Dirty Half-dozen: Six Terms You Should Never Google

by Keith Greenhalf


Search Engines can be a great tool when browsing the Internet, but a recent study by Mcafee Corporation has found certain search terms can put your PC at great risk. Among the most dangerous:


free screensavers


download music


free games








In many of these cases, up to 72 percent of the results returned by search engines contained web sites linking directly to malware (Spyware) downloads and put users at great risk for identity theft. (Source: wxyztv.com)


The study also suggested that sponsored search engine results are more likely to contain problem websites than non-sponsored results.


What can you do to Protect Yourself?


The best line of defense against risky web sites is to update your computer regularly by visiting the Windows Update Website, by using up to date firewall, antivirus and antispyware software.
