OK, I've got a dual boot system. I have an anti-virus on one, which I will use for web browsing and gaming or whatever. On the other partition I have disabled the LAN driver so that it is not possible to connect to the internet. The reason I do this is because I record music on my computer and anti-virus software slows everything down. I want to keep this installation as clean and clutter free as possible. It will be used for nothing but music. My question is, how likely do you think it would be that a virus could get on this partition?
