Unfortunately it is a hazard that sometimes we need to look at sketchy sites to find something we need. When I know I need to search for old versions of software, key crackers for that file no one knows the password to or whatever, I use Sandboxie. I run my web browser in Sandboxie and have that sandbox set to delete all its files when I close my browser. Even if I get something it gets deleted when I close. I also use it to test install software that I don't want permanent. Also noscript for firefox stops most of that as no scripts are running.
