i've been a mac user for the last 1-2 years. im setting up a windows box for my mom and dad to use for email and banking and whatnot. my mom insists on having virus scanning software installed...but i have no idea what software is good these days.

any suggestions? please and thank you :)

i use avg because it's free and resourcely light

i'm sure nod32 is the batman of anti virus software, but avg seems to 'work' too ..






as well, i thought this thread was about actually finding / creating viruses

in highschool i used to collect 'live' viruses on floppies, and the asm source to as many as i could find scouring the net ..

that's my story !

me too, i just never found actual source for viruses on bbs's

from bbs's i was highly successful in downloading many boot sector nasties (hiding .exes) hidden in games though :/

duke nukem 3d was responsible for bringing Monkey_B to me and all my friends, and really half of brampton

i even took it to school unknowingly ..

there's also a very popular song "Chiba City Lights" created by Basehead, and a less popular but much better remix by chuckbiscuits from 96

<--------------- information overload
