I've not had a virus issue for the last 2 or 3 years. The only issues I've had
was faulty hard drives. I had 2 seagate 500 GB sata2 drives just die on me.
The only thing the drives did was make clicking noises. I rma'ed the drives
and got replacements. I also, have a Western Digital 250 GB seating on
my work bench. Its dead ... the system had a HD issue, myfriend call me saying
the system wouldn't boot up. I went to their home and the drive was making
clicking noises. So, I had to replace the drive and restored from a backup
on the system. I'm a big believer in having 2 hard drives in systems. One
for the OS and apps ... the second for backups,drivers and OS files ...
Basically .. knock on wood ... I still have 3 more of those 500 GB drives
in my main system. I hope I don't need to replace them ...
FYI ... Do backups ....
