thats because ppl don't know what they are doing.
If u visit only safe websites (not any hacking,porn etc ones) and know what u are downloading and have a firewall u are not going to get many viruses.
I know of a website that once u go there u get a virus. Well actually the virus get's in when u close the browser after visiting that site.
Quite nasty. But that virus was immediately overpowered by my AntiVir, which totally kicked it's ass.
I've had a few viruses. I think I have had 2 that I couldn't get rid of without reformatting. And then some smaller ones, like the one I mentioned above.
