    Ok, I'm tired of this, logging into my computer every week to find a new virus on my computer. Last week my computer was sending emails by itself, this week it seems my anti-virus program got disabled by a virus. What pleasure do these people get from infecting computers? I know there are some assholes in this world so thats not what bothers me too much. What bothers me is I pay for Nortan Anti-Virus 2004 professional, spend hours setting up Spy-bot, Ad-aware, and numerous other programs, and still find that they do f-all. I know that its probably due to my low-security system settings and me using kazaa, but thats why I have these programs, so I can go on the internet without having to disable some protection in my browser so I can look at a web page, so I can download music, etc. So my question to you guys is why do all this? Why spend your time to protect your computer when you get infected anyways? Is there a solution to this that I'm missing? I've posted a number of times on this forum and supposively rid my system of infections...for what though?

    Kazaa, seems you've made a choice. Not the best one for your machine, but if thats what you want to do it is your machine.
    If you don't clean it up, it'll slow to a crawl or worse but again, that is a choice. I am not knocking you, so please don't take it that way. Just telling it like it is.
