Was thinking again about virus's and their impact which focused my attention as to how they get to the computer in the first place. 1. Peer 2 Peer (Morpheus, etc) 2. Internet broadband always on connections. 3. Disk sharing. Its number 2 that interests me with windows sp1,sp2 improvements have been greatly received but there is a flaw INTERNET EXPLORER, how many times have you had to disable the install active X button before you can proceed. These Active X installations in MOST cases are installing spyware products, dial up's or some other nasty. Internet explorer has become a pain in the bot..it is the main target for hacking attempts. I suggest that you try firefox 1.1 which will replace internet explorer entirely, its similar but a better experience and hassle free. Just another way to limit the chances of getting another unwanted file installed by mistake by yourself.
