    Maybe more important than that is discipline; you have to fully automate your backup or force yourself to do it regularly. Many people will backup only on ocasion and then...

    On a more serious note there was a study that around 40% of the viruses on internet come from porn sites... That tells a lot about people :D

    I don't know exactly how anyone could measure that but there is one thing I know for sure and that goes back to the days when there was a serious alliance between porn sites and warez sites; for a significant period this was one of the major forces pushing the need for bigger bandwidth.

    As long as people insist on having illegal software, there will be a huge surface attack.

    Porn? Well, apparently there is a big demand, the .xxx domain will be in place very soon, with or without viruses.

    For virus protection your antivirus software should be updated daily. You will take backup of data regularly for safety of your important documents.

    Use linux instead of window if you want virus free environment. If you want solution for windows use good 5-6 antivirus and rotates them monthly

    What a NONSENSE lol! In no case you should use Linux to avoid viruses, as they will get there too and to all, you will be stuck up with damned Wine ... And absolutely do not use more than 1 antivirus at a time, it is proved, that 1 antivirus can fool another one, so even a normally detected virus can pass trhough, if you have more AVs.
    Just do a backups regulary and use some solid (one) antivirus, for example Norton, Avira or Eset ...:nice:

    I agree with most of you. Howver you have the option to store all important files in a external hard drive.

    i just want to say keep 5-6 anti virus on you computer not to install all. Just install one for one month and then change the av for another month.
    You can also use deep freeze also if you want to protect from virus:crazy:

    Ohso, but still, it's not a good idea. As I suppose, you mean to download all those AVs, right? I don't think you would want to buy them all ... And if you download such amount of AVs there is big probability to infect urself with some undetectable virus. And if you thought about FREE AVs, then I shall say - They are crap! So you better buy (or download from very trusted source) some Very good AV and install it, but still make the backups, becouse even the best AV in the world won't protect you against new viruses!

    you said it "even the best AV in the world won't protect you against new viruses" then whats the purpose of buying a paid antivirus. No antivirus detects all the virus then try to rotate all if you want to make back up try deep freeze its best one.
