Firefox also has some limited built-in and some very thorough add-on/plug-in capabilities that constantly update for scam and ad websites and either block them or give you option (I think) to proceed to the webpage if desired. At least I think that's all correct...it's been awhile since I looked at the details.

At least one of the constantly updated lists also includes websites identified and submitted by users as spam/scamsites. The list had hundreds of "bad" websites last time I looked.

In order to completely remove the Antivirus Soft from a computer, it is best to download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Sometimes, Trojans will block the downloading and installation of MBAM. If this happens, download it from a clean computer and rename the executable file before executing on the infected computer.
