Ransomware is my worst nightmare. Nearly impossible to get rid of and some of the worst randsomware encrypts your hard drive so you lose all your data on your drive AND on any drives you connect to the computer in question.

Computers are going to have to get much more distrustful about things, especially Flash stuff, in the future.

Windows Vista through 8 actually have it right, pop up a UAC warning anytime a piece of software wants to install or do some specific stuff (running the first time unless it is a known good Microsoft file is one exception to the rule).

AVAST-"the internet is scary and you should be afraid of the things. To protect yourself you will need our things. 200 million people already use our things to reduce the fear....so should you."

It's their own fault to begin with for visiting dodgy sites. My PC never infected by malware for more than 3 years.
