Currently I have no malware (to my knowledge) on my Win 7 Ultimate , 64-bit desktop. I apply all MS updates promptly. I have installed MSE and I run a daily quick scan and a weekly full scan. No threats detected. I have also downloaded and ran SOPHOS Virus Removal Tool several times - clean each time.
I am not foolish enough to think that my pc is 100% clean (it may be). There could be something lurking about that was not detected. I have read the lengthy and helpful cleanup process posted by tech savvy members here to help others. That is wonderful to have that kind of knowledge and help available here.
My question: Should I just continue to be proactive as I have been in applying updates and doing regular scans - and not think I have a problem until it is certain I have one?
Thoughts/comments will be appreciated.
