I've never caught a virus, but I usually stay away from those "inspector" sites that cause viruses, cough, cough.
BTW... yeah... I got your "drift"... Inspect-her
sites! Always the funny guy!?
To be honest... they may not have been quote "Viruses". I do know for a fact multiple Trojan Horese were involved. By multiple, I mean over 7 the first time. AVG caught and removed at least 3 of them. The remaining 4 (or more) were imbedded so deep, I had to take it into the local geek shop, where three days and $285 later, they were removed. Expensive lesson, learned I. That was about three years ago.
Last Winter, I spent three months battling the little Nasties, until they finally overpowered my attempts. Again, it was a massive Trojan attack. The one that finally did me in, I could only find by searching line by line, and it was imbedded in, get this, IE5. Uh, I didn't even have IE5 loaded on my 'puter, but everytime I went online, all the worlds IE based websites would play hell with it. I spent about $100 on AV programs that time before it gave up the ghost. This time I replaced the unit.
So my current unit is only 6 months old, and so far no bugs. I would like to keep it that way, for at least another two years.
Thanks for everyones help.
