a) doesn't have antivirus protection
b) opens _anything_ from an unknown or unreputable source
gets what they deserve.
www.pricewatch.com lists McAfee for as little as $6.50, and Norton for as
little as $8.99.
Antivirus is cheap.
Stupid, well, that can be very expensive.
That's _significantly_ below retail, and I'd be wary of those
vendors. By the way, pricewatch just indexes sellers' websites,
it doesn't sell anything itself.
You bet. If you choose to run Windows with all of it's vulnerabilities,
buy an antivirus, use it, keep it up to date, and run the windows
updates. Almost all of these exploits attack things which have
already been fixed, but people are behind on doing the updates
so they get them.
