Re: How often do you run a spam/virus scan?
I have Counterspy and it has active monitor as long as the PC is on, like a firewall. It runs scans once a day in the evening. I love that software and highly recommended.
As far as virus scans, Norton does it once a week on Friday's. It's overkill when it does that and takes soooooooo long.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
