My solution:
Do not use IExplorer version<7! Better: uninstall it completely!
Use Firefox, Flock or Opera instead (with webpage-threat advisors as belarcAdvisor, Sitehound, wot and McAfeeSiteAdvisor)
Don't forget NoScript!
And hosts related software to protect zonemapping
Use Spybot Searcha&Destroy!
