If you use crap that everyone tends to use (i.e. Norton, MacAffee), there comes a point when people will decide to use it as a hole. Those programs don't catch very much and are not nearly as good as Avast, which is free for non-commercial use and works on even linux.
@tsundere: Ubuntu is also awesome for UNIX gurus who want to get up and running quickly, and are bored with editing configuration files. The installer manages just about everything for you! From empty harddisk to productive computer in half an hour! No more wasted days installing Windows + a zillion programs to make the system usable, or recompiling kernels like in the old days. It. Just. Works. Yay! Also, there're HOWTOs for EVERYTHING for Ubuntu. If anything is supported for Linux, it almost always supports Ubuntu.
People who say go with Ubuntu is just fan boys, I'm a Ubuntu user and when it comes to software and gaming support Linux sucks big time, Windows is actually good if you know how to use it with a genuine key and a good AV I go with kaspersky :p MAC eeeh too much money for low end specs, conclusion : windows is an all-rounder with flaws lol
That happened to me as well. My Norton 360 was blistfully unaware that a virus was slowly taking over my computer. Urrrgh,
Was just about to suggest this. Guaranteed the OP used McAfee or Norton, which we (our IT department at the company I work at) joke is more of a virus than the viruses themselves. Just do a full uninstall and get Avast! or AVG and save yourself the hassle. #9 - my definition of an FML is a situation that your life is truly f***ed with. This situation can be somewhat easily remedied so ironic or not, it is not a true FML.
