When I used to have XP, I got a virus which got in my OS and kept popping up that i need antivirus. I had to reinstall the whole Operating system. I have had no problems with vista.

That's antivir thing directing to a particular site to purchase anti virus. Even I had experienced that. Felt formatting was the only option left. But I could remove it successfully after doing an online anti spyware scan

My computer was infected with virus many many times. I had to struggle a lot to remove it and format my computer again. The main problem is , if the virus is too much you cannot even get the data which you had saved on your system, you have to format the entire system which is very painful. Last time, my hard disk was corrupted and I couldn't even repair it just because of the virus infection, nearly 40GB of space and hard disk was lost, since then I am being very careful in using the system and also I see to it that my antivirus is always updated.

I use avg antivirus. My computer antivirus can detect if there is virus attacking my computer. So I can prevent on it. But sometime I found other virus that has been in my computer with the scanning regularly and avg doesn't detect it immediately when infected. Usually it is a trojan. So I just delete it / heal it. keep post Happy myLotting....
