Though I will not argue that the above steps are great for avoiding viruses, just in the past week having owned an anti virus program I have learned that simply going on the internet does present some viruses.

Both while being on Myspace or Facebook I have had at least one alert while being on each site from McAffe saying that they blocked a trojan.

There were also viruses already on my computers recovery files just 5 minutes after reformatting my computer, and I had not been on the internet when that was discovered.

And I also learned that some of my portable hard drives and CDs also have viruses in them, all of which have now been taken care of.
