hello, found this site while trying to avoid dell's $99 fee to get rid of virus burst. am hoping it worked! mom of 17 yr old son who downloads way too much stuff, no doubt, and i generally just :thumbsup: check emails and do searches. that's about the sum total of my computer savvy. every time i have a problem i think i really should learn more... but then go on with life...

Downloading is perhaps the greatest cause of malware on a computer. You might suggest to your son that he take some time and read some of the excellent BC Tutorials about computer security.
