  3. Do not download pirated software. If possible, rely on legitimate download sources all the time;

  5. Do not click on popups saying that you need to update software, etc. 

In general, ignore any suspicious online content as it may be scripted by hackers. Visit reliable websites and think twice before downloading any software.
