    This looks like an excellent extra tool in the fight to prevent scammers and spyware. It works on both IE and Firefox and shows when you appear at a site of dubious intent by changing the colour on a small window.

    It's owned by MacAfee so it's as safe to use as they come. Just installed it myself but I think it'd be a good weapon in the fight against scammers for anyone :)

    Thank you rutty. I found it easy to install and use, and free!
    It even flags up each list-item on a Google search, so I can know
    the risk before selecting it.

    Yeah, I noticed that only after I installed it too ;)

    Seems to work well though I'm yet to happen upon a dodgy site. Obviously my surfing habits are beyond reproach :D
