Spyware cripping pc's

  spuds 12:19 28 Jul 2004

At one time, my local PCWorld use to display how many virus or spyware had been caught on the machines they had in for repair.They don't seem to display this now,but previously it was in the very high figures.

I generally find that people tend to forget to check and update. I have downloaded and installed various good and well recommended 'free' programmes on friends computers, only to find that they are well behind with the updates when I visit, as they have forgotten to check.Doesn't matter, how many times you explain the situation, it never seems to make any difference.
