I'm new to owning a computer so excuse me if I ask dumb questions...I just got a Linux 17 live dvd. I have been using Wxp.
The Linux works great so far, the other version wouldn't let me online. Can a computer get a virus if you're using a live disc? I had malwarebytes on the Wxp but the icon doesn't show in the tray on Linux. Do I need to install it again? As I said in other posts I never got the correct key to the Wxp so it will expire in 26 days and I'm hoping the Linux will keep me online after that. Should I eventually put the Linux on the hard drive or just run it in the dvd player? All I do is surf the net, email,ebay, and YouTube--nothing else.
