Your Computer Is Infected!

Quote:
Would you put your hands all over a toilet, seat and all? You probably wouldn't dare to. Playing around the toilet is the first thing that our mothers teach us not to do. However, you might as well just go now and play with it. After all, you're exposed to a lot more germs than on your toilet. Your keyboard, mouse, and computer desk are a lot germier than you may think.

you could say the same thing about door handles, telephones, taxis, buses, almost anything in a shop, in fact anything at all that has been touched by somebody else.

we have do have immune systems, after all.

the 'article' is masquerading as journalism, but is in fact an advert, like so many these days.

imagine college computers throughout campus - talk about a massive germ fest

I'm sure many of us have less than desirable keyboards

not to forget...MONEY not only the source of all evil but also a nice collector of all kinds of germs.
But then again I have a theory. Like Mickey said we have an Immune system which is supposed to deal with those germs. But how can that system gets trained if each and every surface is wiped down with chlorine derivatives. Is it just me or is anybody else seeing a relation between the urge to sterilize everything and the rise of all kinds of allergies? From my childhood I don't recall knowing anyone with any form of allergy....from the people I get to know now almost every other is allergic to something. Perhaps I just know the wrong people then

If our immune system couldn't stop those germs, they would have killed us by now.

Things are dirty, get over it.

Any article containing a bias towards any particular product or product line is almost definitely not really an article, but an advertisement disguised as being so. Also, being on a blogspot page makes it seem even more suspicious.

I'm not saying it is malicious, but it definitely does not appear to be professionally done to me.

One of the best things new parents can do is allow their children to play in the dirt.

You do not want to give honey to a child under one year of age, but anything else is okay.

Best option for an infected computer?
I may or may not be infected with malware/virus, but I'd just like to clean out my system anyway. (There are some signs of them but scanners report nothing.) What is the best method? I currently have Macrium Reflect but am not sure if that's the best way for my situation.
