Question What are the most common ways of getting trojan viruses?

I'm just wandering because my brother keeps fucking up his laptop and getting like 20 trojans. I'm just wandering how he got them. Even if I tried I couldn't get that many rofl. He doesn't download off torrent sites. I also installed Comodo firewall but some how they still got on there. I have got rid of them now (for the second time lol) just wandering what he is doing wrong.

social networking links... facebook, myspace. I've had to repair some ugly stuff on some machines regarding trojans and malware. Clicking certain links that get sent to you over messages or clicking certain videos on those sites. Just make sure they know what it is before anything gets opened
