He never said anything about making it more secure? He said he's never come across anyone that's had a worse computing experience by installing updates.

Focus some of that rage you keep bottled up towards reading comprehension.

Sometimes it even redirects when you get a search that returns nothing, which is annoying as hell. My dad's laptop is slow as hell and there's about six or seven toolbars I've disabled and uninstalled, and there's ads that manage to get past Ad Block Plus. That's a pretty sure-fire sign there's malware operating when you get ads getting around ABP.
So somehow that's Microsoft's fault? That's serious spyware you're talking about, and you need dedicated anti-spyware software to remove it; an antivirus often won't look for that so it's meaningless to say they run an AV when it doesn't prevent that (unless it's part of a security suite, and even then security suite-based anti-spyware is generally crap).

Find where I said in my first reply to you, AT ALL, that Windows updates improved security. But since you're so hung up on the security "problem", I'll address it as so:

Specific updates to Windows close holes that allow exploits that can be used to orchestrate DoS attacks and the like; that doesn't mean those exploits are actually used to transmit malware (or often enough used at all), or that the updates prevent malware from reaching the system. It's a "just in case" measure that Microsoft takes to help protect its more profitable markets. Ever heard of a company being attacked via Windows exploit? Exactly why Microsoft bothers with this.

All you really need is Firefox with noscript and have the knowledge of knowing what to click on and what not to click on.

Also, the only sites I ever visit on my home machine are OCN, facebook, saabcentral, and prisonplanet. And I don't fall for that, OOOO I GOT A FREE IPHONE 4 CLICK HERE!!!! crap.
QFT.

The last time I had a virus or any type of infected pc, was around 2-3 years ago....

Just know what to and not to do, and your fine.

I just downloaded Norton 2010, but that's because it SEEMED that I had a virus.... it was just lagg for some reason.

You really don't need Anti-virus.

P.S

2-3 years ago I thought I could plug in 2 monitors into each other, and my PC would some how connect to them....

I am surprised by this community.... I thought we knew that making the OS more secure barely works.

What happens is people get familiar with how it works, find workarounds and make a virus that does just that.

"Works around" it.

I have never not once blamed Microsoft for the viruses I get, I downloaded them, I did something I shouldn't of, and now I am learning a valuable lesson in what exactly not to do.

But then again, I am passive with technical stuff.

I have no problem killdisking my hdd.

Some of us do not have that luxury.

Why not just tell everyone to get an anti-virus?

Let's put a Internet Test in the OS where you need to complete the test and pass it before you are allowed to get online.

whoever wants this also wants all cracked videogames and other cool stuff gone. . If this gets approved, Microsoft will take over the Internet and everybody except middle schools will be using Macs.

Actually I do as well.

You know, the guy that always visits at the LAN community... without an Anti-Virus app, that infects everyone... Mmnnnnn~... Yeah...

...We kinda hate that guy.


OT: Chunky has 8800 posts OH YEAH!!!
