Really! I see people sometimes at local stores asking for advice on what antivirus software they should get. They're like "Well I have Norton Internet Security 2007 but I was thinking of getting Norton Internet Security 2008" to which the sales clerk responds "Well the 2008 version is only $60, and $50/year for the subscription" man, I hate London Drugs, them an their $140 2600XTs sitting next to their $180 2400XTs. Although these are the kind of people who like to open those "Hey_Check_Out_These_Cool_Pics.exe" files they get in their email so they kinda deserve it.
The last malware of any kind (including spyware and adware) I got was W32.Blaster 3 years ago when I decided it wasn't worth the effort to unplug my ethernet while doing a first boot of XP SP1. In minutes my desktop had about 14 icons relating to online poker, viagra, and cialis
(To the XP/Windows haters I'd just like to point out that the SP2 install disks don't have this problem at all)
