I use a bootable usb stick with a restoreprogram installed on that copies windows from an image of a clean installatiion of windows that has every driver and program I need installed on already.

Takes like 1 minute to boot up and initiate the restore process and 2 minutes to restore the system.

MUCH better and cleaner then any antivirus program especially since there is alot of **** out there that is not classified as bs like allsearch addons or w/e bs addons that can infest your webbrowser.

I built my own computer and paid $525 and it's a powerhouse.


If your computer is such a powerhouse, then why does a little bit of extra RAM that norton uses matter? lol

How would you know if you had a virus if you don't use an anti virus?

I'm using NOD32.

I just assume that it is. I always talk in code.
