It's too long a file, and the responses are half the comedy.

Nah, haven't gotten any in years. If you know not to click on the wrong stuff your risk is super low. Low enough IMHO that its unnecessary to run the computer-slowing programs that try to combat it. And, if infected, re-image.

I suspect that by, "re-image", he's referring to restoring a complete image of the system - an image that was made prior to any infection, corruption, etc. This can be a lot less work than trying to clean up a damaged system.

Read up on "disk imaging software" if you want to learn more.

System restore just rolls back the drivers and system registry to a (hopefully) working set.

Imaging software, such as Norton Ghost makes a compressed copy of an entire hard drive or partition and can restore the partition. It is a very powerfull utility.
