Where was that thread? I must have missed it??!!
That's why it is important to have your antivirus set to scan all incoming objects!!! This is not a game we are talking about. Let it scan every download, e-mail, etc. It slows down things a bit, but it is definitely preferable to the alternative consequences! I have never had a virus and I think this is the main reason. And the fact that I have never relied on Norton. I have F-Secure on my laptop and AVG on my desktop.
