    I have never had a virus. The closest thing to it is adware that I willingly installed as part of free software. Instead of buying the full version, I just stopped it from loading at startup so I didn't have to worry about it.

    I was looking for backgrounds on DeviantArt. I got infected with around, what, like more than 50 viruses in one sitting? They were nasty ones like Vundo and stuff like that. We were lucky, and Malwarebytes eliminated 'em all.

    Lol, living on the edge! you have a clock behind you ticking down with the "24" sound as you disabled it?

    Malwarebytes isn't exactly an antivirus. It, however, searches through your computer with a quick or full scan, and allows you to quarintine files and repair them if possible. Though all antivirus can do that, this program excels at it.

    So get AVG and Avast! as well. (both of which have a free version)
