  1. A great way to stop from getting a virus when you accidentally click on anything is to automatically delete your history especially the cookies and then run your virus protection.

    And while free virus protection is useful, it only costs like 9 bucks a month (or less) to pay for one and it works a lot better. Just talk to your parents about it. Your internet provider should be able to download it on your computer.

    But I would only suggest that if you are going to sites that are prone to viruses. Any downloading sites, steaming sites, etc.
