    Thanks a bunch for your help Ken!

    I think the BEST solution to stay bug free is just sacrifice the arm and the leg and get a MAC! LOL!! Although I'm sure they are not without their own problems.

    Cheers!!

    Well, as Macs get more popular there being targeted also, but right now not as much as windows, but as there market share improves you will start seeing threats targeting Macs

    Not a big fan of Macs, I am a windows guy, but if you keep all your programs updated , like your browser, Java, Adobe, Flash Player and a host of others you should be ok.

    Remember the weakest link in the chain may be you, dont open email from someone you dont know, dont download attachments unless a friend said he sent you one , dont surf Porn or use any P2P ( File Sharing Programs )

    I have been at this for almost 8 years and most of the infected computers I clean are from users just downloading things they dont even know about

    Use your head , just enjoy your computer with all of its benefits and stay safe
