I think the O.P.'s post actually contains links to useful info for those who may not be as experienced as others here with computers.
+1 for that.

@everyone -- There are a number of excellent antivirus software programs and I am sure we each have our preferences. The primary objective is that an A/V be installed and kept updated.
Corrine, You are most welcome.
I subscribe to your 'Security Garden' RSS feed.The advice that you provide is, IMO, always sound & very helpful.

Norton is the best although it takes lots of mb on your hard drive

You may have different anti-virus program but for me Norton 2010 is the best

It's been done to death I think... It's almost like it's become pollite(?) conversation on just about every windows forum. "How's the weather?", "How was you Christmas?", "What did you get up to on the weekend?", "What's the best antivirus?"...

Surely by now everyone would know that the best anti virus protection is:
don't connect your computer to the internet or network, and never, ever use an external hard drive, flash drive, cd or dvd. In fact, just disconnect the power and never switch it on... that'll ensure you never get BSOD's either!
IMHO, you're better off with a mac, because if you never have to switch it on, at least it'll look pretty.
