Just reinstalled Ubuntu today. Its been a long chain of operating systems. Went back to windows due to me messing up Ubuntu, reinstalled Windows, tried to put SUSE on but couldn't as DVD that I waited a month for was corrupt, went back to windows but got about 5 viruses before I even could put SP2 on there even though I only went on 2 websites. So, windows can stuff it's self, I'm back to Ubuntu. Pretty good for only having it again for 3 hours or so. Need to get Beryl on it again.

You must not be behind a firewall/router because I've never had any viruses on windows before I set up a firewall or install sp2. I think that routers help a lot if you're on a dedicated high speed connection.

I've got a router, I just think I was a little unlucky. Think I might have turned its firewall off in the process of doing something though. :p

 

that is why you shouldn't plug in your network adapter before installing SP2 a virus checker and firewall.

 

I would put SP2 and all of that stuff onto a disk, but I don't have a dvd/cd burner.

Hardware firewalls like that block ports rather than programs, they will not stop any virus using the ports that are open for use by your web browser/email client, you need a software firewall (zone alarm is a good free one) to stop that.

That is a problem, I would get a friend to burn you a copy in case you ever want to re-install windows again.
