Im with joxley here, get some protection. How ya meant to know if you have a virus if you cant check?

The average time you need to be online and get a virus is 8 mins apparantly, so your not doing yourself any favours. There are even free solutions like AVG so theres no excuse really.

Get a free version of Avast or AVG. I've had no problems with either of these free virus protection programs. I'm just not sure if they are compatible with Vista yet (though they probably are by now).
