I build lots of PC and tweak OS for people, I will not use install or recommend any AV rather tell them to get on the internet and get informed because simply I do not believe in them. :p
I think jgf just jumped at the phrase by mistake.
1. You need to have to have a bullet-proof procedure to back up your perfect sim hardrive Operating System, ( I hope you keep them seperate )
You will rarely find a boot virus these days that infects extended partitions.
All that is old school stuff no worry unless you go downloading years
2. Yes use trusted sites.
I told people years back not to use ubbob and spaceface accounts.
Besides the obvious dangers what do they do, sell you out in the end.
Flash, Media player online virtually any software online are virus honey pots.
3. Use another cheap PC for all this and free up your gaming rig.
That way you can run it with full AV, rstore points, full security, encryption .... whatever it will not matter how much process................
I mean seriously, if you do not know what is safe to browse and download and use on your game tower you should give up while you are ahead.
Oh yeah, tell me it was not a concerted effort to infect Mac users.
" Oh crap ! Ethel !@! we must go to the store right now and get a AV "
"Nothing can save you from yourself"
