More than 50% of Ipgp users had problems with viruses in the last year

According to a poll that run on Ipgp.net for over 3 months more than 50% of Ipgp.net users had problems with viruses in the last year. This, taking into account that 17% don't know that a virus is, that may led us think that they wasn't aware that they had viruses.

A good thing is 25% of our users never experienced problems with viruses. I hope it was not an answer based on a high self-confidence, or they may had viruses they weren't aware of. I remember times when i first got to computers, the era before windows. I user MS-DOS + Norton Commander. At that time I was not aware about viruses and what they do and there is a chance that i had some of them but i never noticed. After i switched to windows i experienced some viruses problems in Windows 98 and Windows XP. At that time the Anti-virus term was not so popular.

These days, if you are a first time computer user, someone will tell you that you have to use an anti-virus. In this way there is a 95% chance that you won't get a virus, although there are so many ways that you can get infected.

    I believe someone remotely placed spyware in my computer. Most of my unknown sender emails started on 1/23/11 and is continuing daily and it recked my computer. I was getting Isnake, keylogger issues. Can I pinpoint the sender by name?

    The fact that you are receiving emails should not have anything to do with your computer. If you had a spyware in your computer now the attacker can have all your credit cards and everything, sending spam mails is the least thing he would do.
