I cannot say 100% that you will not get infected if you download your antivirus program, but it is highly unlikely. If you installed XP, with SP2, you should be fine. Download the program on the computer you have now, instead of "Open", choose "Save", and save the .exe file to a location, burn it to CD, or if you have a USB Jump Drive, put it on there. MOST
viruses are spread through email attachments, and things you download. So, if you trust the site you are downloading this program from, you have very little to worry about. I've heard good things about nod32, just never have used it. Stay away from Norton- you'll thank me later....
