    There is a new virus out now that is scheduled to start destroying documents on Windows computers on February 3. My best advice is to backup any important documents today if there is anything you don't want to take any chances on. And if you haven't run an anti-virus scan in a while, I'd run one today.

    And then get a Mac...

    nice props for the Mac

    and yes it's true, Windows is a Mac OS clone
    except for the virus', legacy hardware crashes, registry entry errors, fatal exceptions, constant security patches, incompatabilities, et al ......

    Got my iMAC G5...I got tired of spyware and viruses.

    If you pick upo a copy of PC WORLD magazine, you will read an entire magazine full of nothing but articles on dealing with spyware and viruses.

    If you oick up a coupy of MAC World magazine, you will read an entire magazione dealing with how you can bettter use your computer and there is next to nothing about spyware and viruses.

    Thats says all I need to know.
