Viruses don't want to be removed, so the nastier ones will fight to stay put by disabling protection software, cloaking their presence and even generating fake windows and dialog boxes to give you a bum steer.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
With the release of Firefox 57 towards the end of this year, Mozilla's browser will no longer support "legacy" addons.

Web of Trust is a popular extension, one we ourselves have recommended in the past. Unfortunately, that trust was misplaced -- the add-on has been removed from Chrome and Firefox's online repositories after it was alleged the creators were selling user data.
