Just brought my Windows 7 (Home) laptop home from the tech. Apparently it was infected with malware that corrupted/deleted a number of drivers.
Machine's working fine now ... but the tech recommended I delete and permanently stop using Waterfox, Scrivener, Rhapsody. In fact, he went on to say, most of the other programs I work with regularly may be similarly dangerous -- even if I deleted them completely and reinstalled them. I should also never bank or shop online.
I've been using Windows daily since 3.1. I do lots of things, but none are weird or shady. Admttedly, I've run into a few problems, but they are far from a common occurrence. I'd never heard recommendations anywhere close to these before.
Are such recommended restrictions The New Normal?
