    Buy a Mac, you don't have to worry about virus. I have had mine for two years with no anti virus program and still virus free. Not to mention it has not crashed, locked up, no blue screens; just an all around pleasant experience. I will not go back to windows, unless I buy an embroidery machine and it requires Windows. Dreading the thought.

    I'm with chuckbere15. Finally went Mac and love it. Even my computer geek hubby who was doubtful was impressed. So much so he got a Macbook pro.

    But glad your wife could fix it for you.

    I am slowly learning to be way more carefull when I am using the computer. I am so grateful to my DD's boyfriend. He is brilliant with computers and has saved mine several times.

    I just showed this to my husband and he laughed ( not a happy laugh) -- he did the same thing -- only worse -- I fixed the computer problem and it has taken 3 weeks and many cancelled and re-issued cards to fix the credit card info thatwas stolen

    I just downloaded the free version and did a quick scan. I found 248 problems which I then corrected. I will do a full scan tonight.

    I agree.....
    they always said.... "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away"

    so in these times, I would change it to:

    "An APPLE ON YOU DESK KEEPS THE VIRUSES AWAY"

    I keep one of those programs on my computer all the time just in case. I too opened one one time that kept dirty pictures popping up one right after the other then an ad for virus protection software came on. Made me sooooo mad.

    I too have a Mac, love it, will never go back to a PC. There are paybacks though. I have two Bernina machines and they are not supported by Mac. I can still download embroidery designs and load them on the USB stick and use them in my machine. Now, if you want to use some of the software from Bernina, it won't work. You would have to get a parallel program that also uses a PC platform. I have been told it will work fine, but I can't bring myself to load anything that has to do with a PC because of all the problems we had with virus and lock ups, etc.

    She sounds great, maybe she deserves a flower?
    Are the mac computers expensive.....I didnt know they didnt get viruses. When all my kids lived here, seemed we always had to get the computer fixed.

    I LOVE my Mac and have also added Windows with Boot Camp to run my embroidery machine. If the Windows part of the hard drive would get a virus, it wouldn't be able to cross into the Mac hard drive portion and corrupt anything. A Bernina educator convinced me it was the way to go. Love it!
