  1. Use addon like popup blocker might help you minimizing the risk of getting adware and spyware as well, make sure your AV is up to date and frequent scan your HDD might help as well.

    Oh yeah, Anonymous browsing function is there for some reason, make a good paratice by using (private browsing) function on a public network such as airport and to do banking or e-commerce , it's even better if you have your own account of Virtual Private Tunneling and use it every time you are on shared network
