I have just spent a considerable amount of money cleaning up my computer. :flowers: It was inundated with trojans, viruses, hijackers, spyware etc which I believe came from the "less than desirable/safe" sites frequented by my 14 year old. :thumbsup:

He enjoys playing WOW and has been using Limewire (he was devastated to find out that Limewire isn't a safe site). I really don't know what is safe or unsafe and I don't want to be unnecessarily paranoid - can anyone suggest some good game and music sites that would be safe to use?

I know he wants to buy some games (counterstrike source) from "Steam", is this an OK site/game?

WoW and Steam are 100% legit.

I wouldn't say Steam is a site. It has a website, but Steam itself is a program you download and install that allows you to purchase and play the games available for it. It's not bad, but it of course kind of requires as broadband internet connection for downloading games, updates, and security anti-piracy stuff it does.
