A Conversation for How to Avoid Computer Viruses

Proposed Title change

Post 1


Seeing as how this article is only about computer viruses, I propose that the title should reflect this.

"How to avoid Computer Viruses", should do it.

I agree. I was drawn in by the idea of being able to avoid disease while traveling in developing countries only to find this article smiley - smiley still a good entry though...

You could always try:

1) Wear a face mask at all times. (Uncomfortable in hot, humid countries.)
2) Copious quantities of insect repellent. (First, find one that works!)
3) Don't sleep with anyone!

NOTE: This is for protection from disease-type viruses, not computer ones. You could try these for computer viruses, but I don't think they'll help much!smiley - bigeyes (Real computer nerds probably don't sleep, never mind sleeping WITH anybody!smiley - winkeye)

A good point. I guess I'm such a hopeless computer geek that I never even considered the other kind. In my defense, neither did the editors. smiley - winkeye
