It seems most people don't do all that much with their PC's other than struggle to keep them working.
Where is some wood to knock on? I dont have any of those. Wait, I guess I should count NoScript (Firefox extension) as a protection tool. And I keep a big host file. And I run as a Non-admin User.
I am mostly a user, with an occasional binge of protecting, cleaning, tweaking, mostly for efficiency... My system is set up pretty different, I tend to like the little-used programs, so I think getting a virus would be like getting my pocket picked while hiking in the woods. What sort of pickpocket (virus) would target me?
