Getting a virus is my biggest fear or spilling something on it.

ditto, but i do know why. It's a giant, complicated, completely messed up and cryptic solution to how your system works. I like hows Linux and OS X handle this better. It's just text files and they are separate. MS gives you a ginormous Tree View and you have NO idea what is what. Just remember to export and save backup before changing anything!

At night, lights would be out. Therefore, my LCD would be the only thing flashing up. Bugs would come closer and closer!

One there. And then, three. And then, five.

I'm not aware of any of those kinds of fears yet. What would scare me to death would be my computer getting hacked or exploding without me backing up the files yet.
