Good set of rules. First time I was infected my son was in primary school. (He brought home the first Word macro virus). Second time he had a LAN party and disinfestation was moderately painful. It was his last LAN party at home. The Gitling's now 32 years of age.

My AV warns of malware infested websites and it's often surprising.

Best insurance against zero-day is backups. One of the reasons I like Linux/gparted. Makes such a breeze.
