Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeus_%28Trojan_horse%29 discusses it in detail.

Also see Wikipedai again for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drive-by_download which discusses how people get it.

Use Chrome browser which is the most secure browser out there.  Watch any Flash videos using Chrome and don't install Flash for other browsers.  Don't install software when offered software so that you can watch videos or download other software.  Only download software from trusted sites.  Virus scan all software before installing.  Use NoScript which disables Javascript from sites unless you specifically allow it, this can be a pain as if you are a heavy surfer this means enabling it for sites you constantly visit and don't quite trust.
