I'm just wondering because I've heard from people that do run antivirus software that there software only seems to protect them from known viruses. It seems that when a new virus comes out, the anti virus software doesn't recognize it.
I've never used anti virus software and have only ever got one worm, and that was about 4 years ago.
I just take simple precautions, like never opening emails from people I don't know that have attachments in them and updating windows security fixes and running a fire wall.
I just wondered what other people think on this topic?
