billwg But the event is parallel to what he is talking about. Both have the same problem in common... mainly the lack...
I doubt it. All I have to do is go to the Seattle Times website and pull up one of their articles.
Staying safe complicated
The defenses remain scattered. Windows PCs often don't come with anti-virus software installed. Firewalls and spam blockers are usually separate too, and there are dozens of small companies offering what they describe as anti-spyware products - some of which actually install spyware.
"Staying safe online has gotten too complicated for the average user to do by buying individual products and making them work together," America Online spokesman Andrew Weinstein said.
Realizing that such fragmentation is making matters worse, some companies are rounding up the pieces of a more complete resistance.
Microsoft recently bought an anti-virus company and an anti-spyware software maker. Time Warner's latest version of AOL checks for spyware and offers to delete it. And where Dell's online guide for configuring a PC used to suggest a combined anti-virus and firewall program without saying why, it now explicitly warns buyers to protect themselves or face potentially costly problems in the future.

Very likely indeed. Microsoft Windows is known to have an MTBI of about 20 mins unless you start adding 3rd-party software. (MTBI is mean time between infections). We queried the CERT database using...
If things get worse, Seemayer probably won't be the only one on his block with a PC cut off from the Internet.
"It's great for anything you can do on your own," he said. "It seems to me an incredible typewriter, and that's it."
And so after reading this, I can only say that Liam is most likely correct.
Getting pretty lame with your pedantry. :-D
You know what I mean tho... getting M$ updates for a newbie can be hazardous to their PCs health.
