the positive side is the virus create more job for making the anti virus.i think our anti virus can update itself when it connect to the internet as well as the new virus spread.so our computers dont have to get infected.just make sure you scan your computer periodically.

I love a good virus, adware, spyware, trojan horse, keylogger and whatnot. I charge co-workers and their families around $20-$30 to clean up and update their computers. I remove on average over 1,000 nasty files of one type or another from each of their computers. One particular bad program called "virtomundo" (spelled a few ways) has made me over $100 in fees to remove the blasted thing. I love it in a dentist giving kids candy kind of way.

yes i agree with that. We can learn from trouble. More u can solve that, the more you gain knowlegde from that. But sometimes new varian of virus comes not in time that u expected. If u really need your computer and suddenly it shotdown and your virus infected your cmos for example. it would be headache.

i use firewall too. And some antivirus can't recognize some virus. This is why i say, first, come a virus and then some "antivirus software" make an antivirus with that new virus.

I do not take any measures to protect my computer. i do not want to install any software other than those which I must use. I hate virus as well as antivirus software. If my computer is infected, I simply format the hard disk, and reinstall the system.

Try reformatting then download the latest version of AVG antivirus its free. if you will not reformat your computer the virus will still be there coz if you will just download any kind of antivirus it will still get infected coz your computer is infected already.

That is why it is very wise to protect your computer beforehand with active on guard protection. This limits the chance of viruses entering, and if they do you should do regular scans.
