They may not be compatible but you will still find sites trying to put things on your system! On a few occasions it was the IE security toolbar option for AVG that caught trojans by coming up with alarm bells with a good sized prompt that stated "Threat Alert, Trojan"! That's when you simply hit the back button or close the IE window real fast!

You're still going run into things like that on occasion while the new filtering will certainly help steer you away once a site has been added into a data base of polluted sites! The effectiveness of the new bugs has been dwindled substantially however. Bug makers don't like that one bit!

Best protection against malware?
