I have another computer question for you ... do you run any anti-virus programs on your computers (ie: Norton 360 2.0)?
I recently purchased a new Vista machine for my parents and we were told that an anti-virus software was an absolute must. However, my past experiences with Norton and other anti-virus, antispyware programs were disappointing (slow computer while background protection was running, slow scans, inadvertently deleting important files, etc...)
They occasionally make purchases with their credit card online (plane tickets) and thats about it.
I've been running Vista on my laptop without any sort of protection aside from Windows Defender that came with Vista and have not had any problems with viruses so far.
Why do you guys think?
Your help is greatly appreciated.
Thank-you so much!!
