Vista Problems with Adware ?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by P.Garza \P.G.Webs\, Feb 26, 2007.

  1. Has anyone had any issues with adware or spyware getting into the sytem
    without the pop up warning notification. A vista tech support rep acually
    advised me that i did not need a virus protection cause it was totally safe.
    Any thoughts on this matter ?

    if you have UAC turned on, every foreigned exe files or process try to run
    alway need your permission. and I can said that it's pretty much safer
    compared to previous OS until other security hole is exploited.

    I don't know about anybody here, but I've been using many computers since
    1989 until now, I've never installed any kind of virus software on any of my
    computer. And I was lucky enough that I've not got a virus or any kind of
    adware in my system. And I surf internet heavily everyday. Of course, I did
    try installing a norton anti-virus when it first came out and I feel it bog
    down system more than it really helps, so I quit messing with anti-virus
    soft since then... Anti-virus term doesn't exist in my vocabulary.

    I am just simply sharing my experience, however, not everybody have the
    same luck.!!
