Malware, Spyware, & Virus attacks while downloading programs

    Dotaz

  • I'am experiencing a (3) fold problem with malware, spyware & virus attacks. 

    My video downloader will (stutter & freeze), to the point of emergency shutdowns.

    Can a lenghty download catch infection, when (objects) starts to attack the operating system ?

    I do have (Microsoft Security Essentials) installed & updated daily. Since March 30th 2012, I've recorded (258) trojan attacks removed by (MSE) alone, in this (Los Angeles) area.

    Is (download security) common while downloading a program ?  I'am starting to worry about future downloading, from websites like (Amazon.com), which can take (6 to 15) hours to complete.

    I've also experienced (core damage) to my (Windows 7 professional) upgrade, to "hack out"  my (name files section), to cause a (1) hour (system restore-successfully), because of (spyware, virus & malware) attacks while downloading a program.

  • 1. I would start with malwarte analysis first. This may point to possible security holes.

    2. You have visited servers that "delivered" unwanted stuff.

    3. Install vanilla plain W 7 and block all unused ports and stop all services that are not necessary for your PC. Alternatively use sanboxed installation.

    4. Use user account with limited rights for download.
