I got that computer in September 8 and in April 99 I'd not been conscious enough of the need for virus protection. So I got hit by the Chernobyl virus.
Since then I've been terribly conscious, virus protection programs, updating, a router, Windows updates, spyware, running checks on weekends.) And avoiding suspicious emails and emails with risky file types.
Never once have I found any virus from running a check and the Chernobyl virus was the only one that ever I had.
Is the virus threat overrated do you think? Sometimes I get the feeling there are more warnings than viruses!
So do you think I've been lucky? Or are those who have the protection I use pretty damn invulnerable? I use my computer daily but primarily for news, shopping and email/ instant messaging.
I mean, how common with my protection is my experience?
I should be very interested in the impressions/experiences of others.
