I built my own computer about a year ago and bought Nod-32 for about $25, all I have to do is keep it updated and I have had no problems. I like Windows and I especially like Windows Vista. People who don't know what they are doing (and Mac owners) give Vista a bad name.

Oh and I forgot to mention... only stupid people get viruses.
Tripp, I've been running windows since I've had access to computers. The only time I've gotten viruses is when I let other people use my PC's. Like Tiny, I keep my stuff backed up just in case, and always have a couple of anti-virus software programs.
It really comes down to the user.

but yeah windows is bad..
like few months ago i got a virus of some sort, my hard drive would not boot up. It finds the hard drive but then it freezes. I dont know if its the above virus however it would not boot up.. starts loading, automatically shuts down and starts over again. so i reinstalled windows and wiped the entire hard drive. That worked till a month or two later i got that anti virus 07 program (which is like a virus).. for some of u that are not clear with that scam.. its a program that installs it self without you knowing, no consent or anything.. once it installs it self, it removes almost all your menus from everywhere saying that its for safety because "your computer is infected with a virus".... (cant even change your background image) and you cannot remove the program even if you tried, the only way to get rid of it is to follow a guide online and manually remove each file or completely reinstall windows or at last buy the crappy program.
about a month ago i got another virus that disabled my cd roms.
Currently i'm not even messing arround w/ updating my computer.. I have like 2 programs installed and thats it lol. Next month i'm pretty sure it will happen again so i'll reinstall windows again

|AzTJ||Tiny, just because you have a Mac doesn't mean you can't get a virus. Macintosh has been quietly advising people with Mac's to get anti-virus software since like 2005. It's still extremely rare... but it happens.|

My next puter will be a Mac.
Maybe I should open the virus so I'll have an excuse.

|tiny terror||And yet you're afraid of viruses. Seems like a waste of energy.|

|Triple88a||my gf has a mac, when i use it i feel like i am in a bad dream getting chased by wild dogs and i cant move.|

|tiny terror||I dislike windows. Loved my Mac from the first time I booted it up. It's an old G4 but I wouldn't trade it for a new windows based machine if my life depended on it.|

|Triple88a||I dont know tiny i am getting anoyed of windows. I am looking at linux however i'm afraid that only 2% of the software i own will actually work on it.|

I get emails, but I don't get viruses.
(and yes Trip, I got that, I was being sarcastic since I own a mac.)

|Triple88a||its an email that you can get.. as soon as you open it, it runs automatically.|

|tiny terror||Virus? What is this virus thing you speak of?|
