    Yeah P2P and sharing sites are floating with it...
    But again sites with decent filters do not have viruses unless it is archived ot in other form quarantined.

    I just watch where I go on the internet. Also, I don't do much torrent stuff either anymore. You could say that I'm watching out for myself without running any software, and like I said, most of my email is internet based, so I'm protected in that respect. I think I'm pretty safe.

    1. Max router's firewall settings.
    2. Work in a limited user account.
    3. Use Opera instead of IE.
    4. Disable scripts, java, and plug-ins.
    5. Using site preferences in Opera, set scripts, java, or plug-ins to work in sites just where needed.
    6. Use Opera's blocked content to block ad serving sites like Doubleclick and IntelliTXT.

    This appraoch is by no means bullit proof and you could still add anti-maelware to it, but this approach by itself has the little perk of actually speeding up browsing.

    By Other peoples networks i meant, LAN party's and free wifi hotspots *doesn't use p2p apart from for the latest linux distros*

    and you seem to forget the websites don't always have control over the adverts that are on their site. I remember Gizmodo pr Engadget having some problems with the flash exploit banner adverts on their site at one point, now its just back to the occasional nsfw banner (the one of the womens backsides with smiley faces on)


    anyway, back to topic
    wanted to mention the gf's computer uses Norton anti virus, I loathe it the subscription ran out
    and the uninstall couldn't run without the software being subscribed to.

    Download this. It'll wipe norton from your system, used it on my xp install and it worked like a charm.
