I understand where you're all going with this, but im still worried about viruses. I was reading another post elsewhere, and i think Gizmo, not sure, said that he's never gotten any kind of viruses on his computer. I for one have owned both a mac and a PC in the past, and the mac never had any kind of problem. on the other hand, the PC, even though i purchased protection for it and had a firewall blah blah it still got viruses and spyware.

Then, the basic subscription is not enough, and they ask you to pay more money for their stronger software, or to have someone come clear your hard-drive off. Many of my friends use macs, and they get monthly security updates for free, and never have any problems ...

what is a good solution to this if i was to go with a pc?
