Well i never had a virus on any of my laptops tht i have been using... but back in 2004, my family desktop used to have a pretty bad virus tht took out the comp's screen and stuff... never rly cared about it since at tht time i didn't give a damn about comps. bak then, and i was attending to my previous master (the T.V) @_@.. other then tht, my father had gotten a fake anti-virus recently, but it was easily removable

I usually get rid of viruses as soon as I get them. I've only had one virus on my laptop, though.

Yes. Dumb Blue Screen of Death. Malwarebytes saved me at the time. I added SuperAntiSpyware to my computer and my household gets McAfee for free with our Internet service provider. Both times I was infected with malware when I was using Internet Explorer (And both times happened less than a year from each other). Since I switched to Firefox I have had no problems (and I like Firefox with its add-ons better than Internet Explorer anyway, so it's a win-win situation). If you don't have some type of malware protection on your computer, you really should get something to save you from headaches later. C-net can provide suggestions and most of them have free versions, but you'll have to remember to update your protection regularly to be of any use if you actually need it. Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware have free versions should you choose those. The paid version for SuperAntiSpyware was so cheap that my dad actually bought it and it provides lifetime protection, which is nice. Malware is such a pain to get rid of. I'm hoping I never have to go through getting rid of malware ever again.

once u get a virus on windows ur doomed lol

but yeah now a days you just have to chose the right browser to be secure I know firefox and chrome are vey secure because of their addons...there are other browsers like opera safari <note that I didn't mention IE because it sucks with security>

but with firefox and chrome once you have all the necessary addons for porn ur pretty much safe lol...depending on how safe u are ur antivirus will never have to do any work at all

Your not doomed, back up everything right away and erase and reinstall your OS and other programs and boom in a few hours your back to where you were and moving on.

I rarely get a virus. There aren't many good anti-viruses anymore. Kaspersky is the best right now. you just have t surf smart.
