OpenDNS can help to filter out bad websites that contain adware and phishingattempts. It makes use of PhishTank whichis a community based anti-phishing service. PhishTank is used by Opera, WOT, Yahoo Mail and by PhishTank Site Checker.

https://www.opendns.com/start/
There's how to set it up.

OpenDNS.

Make sure you just change the DNS in your router, that way you don't have to go through all the settings on all your computers to change the DNS.

OpenDNS does, in a way. Like Google search, it will warn you if the site you are going to visit is dangerous or not.
