I hate to ask this, but I'm going to.

How secure from viruses is this site? My husband accuses me of getting viruses here since our computer is always messing up. I don't think it's true, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

  • I doubt if it's from this website! Do you have cyber defender? Just checking I installed that and my computer kept f-ing up. really made me mad once I uninstalled that my computer was working fine again. and I also delete history stored like temporary internet files, and cookies at least once a week that helps too.

  • I've never had a problem w/ this site... myspace is terrible... viruses can some from anywhere... if you have comcast, you get free mcafee... if not, get norton... pc doctor pro is AWESOME!!

  • A great and FREE antivirus is Avast. If you go to their site, you can download it for free. There is also another good shareware (free) site for a tool to clear your computer's cache, I use both of these since a friend who is a big techno geek recommended them and I have had no problems. I honestly do not think it's cafemom that is giving your 'puter viruses!
