Question to Oasis users.

What kind of anti-spyware, anti-virus, or anti-malware do you run? I'm currently running Ad-Aware Game Edition, Microsoft Security Essentials, and Peer Block (actually a firewall).

I don't know?

Does 'Having a Mac' count?

Well,

having a Windows 7 machine does fine by itself too. However whether you have the lastest version on Windows, Apple's OS, Linux, Fedora, et cetera you can never be too careful. I believe an unnamed person once said "The internet is a jungle, don't get eaten".

Although we are far from the "Wild West" days of the internet and crawling isn't so crazy we still need protection. With the popularity of Apple's OS, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple products would soon be targetted right next to Microsoft Windows. So to finally answer your question, I'm sorry it might not count for very long (if my prediction is true).

I haven't a clue. I don't

I haven't a clue. I don't pay attention to that stuff. As long as my computer is operational, I'm good. I think I have Norton, but I'm not positive.

Hmm,

my take on the issue is that it should matter, as a computer is really more an investment that should be taken care of and maintained like say a car or a bicycle.

Pretty good!

This is why people need at least two programs as such. Just one program often won't cover the whole spectrum and people don't often realize that.

To everyone with Microsoft Windows,

I highly recommend you get Microsoft Security Essentials. It's free but you need to know your OS (Windows version) and Processor type (x86 / 64). There are updates available everyday and it removes a lot of junk that other programs might not pick up.

Damn! That sucks. I would

Damn! That sucks. I would die if my laptop didn't work. My neighbor spilled water on her roommate's laptop. Neither of them seem to worried. It's concerning.
