internet frustration

I have seem to had the worst luck doing anything on the internet lately. I goggle something and next thing you know, I will have picked up a Trojan, or other nasty virus or hack file. It is incredibly irritating, and its is getting to the point where I am going to stop using any search engine, and if that doesn't work, I just may stop using the internet altogether. I have already stopped buying things online because you just cant seem to trust anyone on it to not sell your information to a spammer. It has been reported that many people who use the internet for making purchases find that their identities are getting compromised as well. With all of that nonsense going on it is no wonder that many people are giving up on PC's and going to a mac because it has a better security platform to it. But even then, it is just a matter of time before someone figures out a hack for the mac and then there will be no reason for high speed internet at least at my house. I will shut it down and go back to the old fashioned way of buying things and that is at a real store.
I wish that we had something like the site advisor (McAffee has one that gives you an indication of pop-ups and other nasties right from the search results page.) here, but even at home something on the PC side has blocked that from working and it only works on the mac now.  Best get off the soap box now, before I get too irritated.
