How do you avoid ransomware?

Does anybody know if any of the normal "virus guard programs" have any options to really  stop "ransomware" programs entering your computer. (I think I'll also ask the Finnish F-Secure company, if they have anything).

Or do you see any way of operating a computer to avoid these malwares. I does not sound easy, as somebody wrote that just opening some web pages can introduce ransomware? (So I'm reasonably wary to open unknown  links, although there are much unknown links given here in the different DPR forums)

regards
