Re virii, you'd be well-advised not to put all your eggs in one basket.
Grab a copy of the latest McAfee SCAN program and run it on your machine
every now and then. You might catch things that have managed to slip past
NAV. Once in awhile I have to use rent-a-PC's at Kinko's locations here
and there; they all have NAV on their systems. Last time, I ran SCAN
(which I always have with me) and found the CONCEPT virus lurking in a
bunch of MS Word templates. NAV was oblivious to their existence.
