So, I’ve been wondering about something.
To my knowledge, I’ve never had anti-virus software activated on any computer I’ve ever owned. (I’m assuming there’s no anti-virus software included with Windows, even of a rudimentary sort. That’s right, right?)
Yet I have never had a virus infect my computer.
I have had some spyware, but nothing that couldn’t be easily taken care of with one of those free spyware removal utilities. And none of it ever caused me any problems within my sense range.
So that’s five or six years of computer usage–computer always on, always connected–with no significant problems with viruses or spyware.
So this makes me wonder–am I just incredibly lucky? Or is the whole virus/spyware/ooo-scary thing a scam? :dubious:
