My System Specs


Hmm so I'm not the only one? My brother's computer got hit by that too - it totally nuked Microsoft Security Essentials on that machine which I didn't have a decent drive image of. I didn't feel like trying to reinstall the OS so I nuked his hard disk and used it as an excuse to build him a new rig with Windows 7, as it would've taken me the same amount of time to restore his Vista license (darned upgrade version).
That said I only run antivirus software because I only use the AV to tell me when I should restore from a drive image.
