These days it's been once every week to 2 weeks! If you don't have your
Norton or McAfee set up to automatically check for new updates, then do it
every time it's Garbage day. It keeps the 'Garbage' out of your system. ;-)
I agree with Jan, if you have the most up to date program and virus files,
there should be no reason that your system is at fault. Just remember you
have to update the program as well as the virus definitions. Norton system
tools checks for both automatically. If you're running Windows and using
any microsoft application you're playing Russian roulette with your system
if you do not keep both these files updated.
