Is anyone else tired of seeing this same question over and over again? People keep asking what's the best way to never ever get a virus. I always reply with the same thing:

Okay follow these steps:
1) Walk over to your modem.
2) Locate the power cable.
3) Grab the cable from the base, and pull it out.

Now you will never get a virus.

You will also not be able to go on the internet. There is a better way and while nothing is perfect you can limit your exposure and prevent most occasions of attracting a virus.

1. The number one place to get a virus is the Porn sites , stay off them and you reduce the chances of getting a virus.
2. Email attachments , never open an attachment from someone you don't know and didn't request such a thing. Even from people you know (since they could already have a virus) scan the email with your anti virus software.
3. Get a good well known anti-virus protection software. I like to go with the Internet Security suite as it includes not only the anti-virus protection but anti spam and malware protection as well.
4. Don't just download any drivers or software , make sure you scan the download and that your downloading from the site that created it. For example if you have a Nvidia video card get the drivers from their web site , same with AMD.

With a little effort you can improve your chances of not getting a virus
