well I don't fear any viruses because along my PC's life I leaned to defend against some virses, but when it comes to trojans and other viruses that can automaticaly drive your computer it's a big fear, because those viruses cand damage your computer, overclock it or any things that no one certainly want to happen.

To be honest, no. I am a proficient computer user and have never had a virus infect my computer. I have only been alerted about a virus' presence a couple of times. I just don't think its hard to keep yourself from getting infected if you are even the slightest bit informed about how to deal with shady downloads and email attachments. I don't really understand how people keep getting viruses, or so many at once. I have anti virus software on my computer that will keep my safe even if I do get a virus.

Of course, couple of months ago my husband and I kind of panicking since our anti virus subcription was expired. We have saved alot of important data and picture in our computer and that we haven't been able to save them somewhere else. Plus we have an alert about some viruses. But glad that one of our friend saved our system and destroyed the viruses. And we make back up on everything in a extra external hard drive ever since....phwe....

Very true, I am afraid of viruses it either slows down PC or corrupts some programs or corrupt certain features of OS. I use Norton Antivirus and update regularly. It is the only antivirus I found to rely on. I have tried many others but not good as this one. Computer Virus is really a threat to digital world. We should combat it at any cost.
