Bugs & Viruses "For at least a decade, the standard advice to every computer user has been to run antivirus software. But new, more commercial, more complex and stealthier types of malware have people in the industry asking: will antivirus software be effective for much longer? Among the threats they see are malware that uses the ability of the latest processors to run virtual machines that would be hidden from antivirus programs."

Dont need Antivirus .
I Run Microwinx 50 mb windows for web-browsing with pre installed stuff nothing can be installed on this machine anymore after the cleanup i can only run my stuff ;)
Unless i import a virus in registry i have the secure system . As long as microsoft does Big Megasoftware with security features full of security holes there will always be exploits unless someone makes a small os that can run in installer mode and no install/no run things mode. If that happens firewalls,anti-adware and Virusscanners would die.
