how do you know that was the last virus/malware/spyware which affected you? today, malware wants to stay unnoticed and the windows users who follow up on their machines like a Linux user analyses the various logs can be counted on 1 hand :wink: let's agree you assume you were not malware infected since 1993
LOL to everyone who presumes that some of us old dogs haven't kept up with the new tricks... :roll:

You don't know me from a hole in the wall, have no clue of what I do for a living and are arrogant enough to presume that just because I don't subscribe to the security approach that is approved by your holiness I am therefore likely to find myself in harm's way.

I've seen things that you wouldn't believe. Now move on, and troll someone else someplace else.

Same here. The last Virus I had, was 1993, and that was a Jerusalem virus on an old, XT running Dos 3.3. I've never had any malware, although, I regularly run MawareBytes.

I'm not assuming anything. I scan for them regularly, scan my registry manually regularly, task mgr, etc. That's how I know. I have written my own patches for years, as I'm a programmer. I wrote security patches for SIPRNET systems for the DoD. You're not talking to a N00b here, sonny.
