Windows 7: My PC just got exploited... Wow.

Hi all
the SAFEST way of surfing is (apart from the useless advice of "Not at all") is to ONLY surf in a VIRTUAL MACHINE. Test anything 100% on the VM before copying to the HOST.

Once you've created a CLEAN vm Clone a number of these so you can always load a new one.

If any probs with Viruses etc on the VM just ERASE the whole thing and load a new one.

Note you should still take proper system backups of course.

Happy Xmas everone --writing this waiting for my Xmas Turkey to have finished cooking -- beats "Clock Watching" for the time to wait for the turkey to cook. I'm not a "very experienced Chef" !!!!

Cheers
