My computer is always getting a virus and I don't know why, do the computer get a virus because you didn't shut it down properly or do the computer get a virus because of certain sites you visit?

Nowadays it's quite easy to get a virus via the net. You will be attacked when you are online. The anti-virus software and the firewall can't make sure you will be safe all the time. You have to be careful when you receive a file from a friend via email or MSN etc.

Yes, I think that maybe some sites that you go to, or like you say email that friends send can be virus, Okay, thanks for responding.
