Re: Do I Really Need Extra Antivirus Software?

It's been a while but Microsoft getting slapped silly for being anti-competitive by bundling Internet Exploder. If they pre-installed anti-virus/anti-malware pro that would be seen as anti-competitive as well. The early versions of Windows were not particularly network secure.

Enough ancient history. I find all all current OS are reasonably secure, but people do wacky stuff. As always, backup often.
