Get a decent anti-virus, and scan regularly.

Re: How to make download safe

And try to check the sources where you download from. Some sites might seem safe and ok, but they're hiding very malicious stuff....

Re: How to make download safe

Use Web Of Trust. It's an add-on for Chrome, Firefox, etc. that tells you whether a website is "safe" or not (based on user ratings).

Wow, the add-on is really nice! Got it for myself too. Thanks habibjp. I had some issues with some sites before, but now they're all gone thanks to this.

Thanks for the Web Of Trust. Just installed it for advance security.

Google search also warns whether the website is safe or not.
