Where are you guys getting all these viruses from? The only virus I've had is the one that the entire United States got a couple of months ago, and I download tons of crap!

I believe mine came through Kazaa. I had 4 viruses but i managed to get 3 of them out before any damage was done, but that damn 4th one wouldn't budge, and caused it's damage now i'm suffering the repercusion.

Even the most consciensious people can get virii. I've currently got that damn blaster 32 worm and it just wont budge.. oh well, i'm due to reformat my laptop soon anyhow.. just waiting to see if i got that new hard drive for christmas!


anyways, sorry to hijack the thread.. good luck! I know with windows 2k and XP, the Install needs to be done in a 32 bit environment.. (i.e. no installing from DOS).what I usually do is blow away the whole hard drive, then throw on a copy of windows 95 or 98, basic install which only takes about 5 minutes, then once in the windows environment, put in the win2k disk and install the OS overtop win9x. Hope I don't sound too complicated.. Also, someone tell me if there is an easier way to install XP on a blank hard drive.

The blaster virus should be fixed automaticly by patching the bad file, formatting won't fix it. i'd do a search for "blaster" in the forums.

You can't get a virus from a music file, but who knows what's being installed with the p2p software/

The first thing i did when i got it up and running was install nortons and then all the windows updates. I didn't open another thing until all that was done. Now today my job is to install all of our programs back into the system, yea so much fun.

I am with Shaggybill on this one! How are you guys getting all these viruses? I download probably more than a gig a week of crap, if not double that. We haven't ever had a virus. My boyfriend is a computer geek so he knows what he is doing which helps but we just simply use Norton and have never ever had a thing.

i got mine when they didn't renew their subscribtion to nortons for 3 months. Don't know if it would have helped having nortons of not, but i'm glad it's back!!!!
