Before you download

I found a resource online that everyone else has probably known about for years, but oh well.  McAfee Site Advisor lets you plug in a website and lets you know if that site has an iffy record, if it connects to sites with lots of spyware, which websites it connects to, and so on.  I will never shop without it again, and as for downloads?  Oh yeah, no software will pass these virtual lips until my poison tester checks it out for me.

If you load AVG (their free virus check from Grisoft) you can also load their browser bar which has a 'search shield' function. :)
