May i remind everyone that you must keep your anti virus up to date at all times and to make sure that you have a valid anti virus licence on your computer if using a shareware software like Norton/nod32/ETC
For free anti virus you can use Microsoft's or avast

You need to pay particular attention on new laptop's/towers/notebooks/ as the trial that accompanies these computers only lasts for one month in general and that removing the anti virus product that came with your machine is not always straight forward so if in doubt seek advice
