Doug Muth's Anti-Virus Help Page

Wow, this part of my website is quite old! I still keep it around for archival purposes, but please take my (rather outdated) anti-virus product recommendations with a grain of salt. Thanks, and enjoy your visit!

Welcome to my anti-virus help page! I've been running this page since about 1995 or so. In that time, viruses have gone from being annoying little programs which spread on floppy disks, to very troublesome beasts which can spread world-wide across the Internet in a matter of minutes.

I think that the best way to cure virus/worm problems is to prevent them from happening, and the best way to prevent them from hapenning is through education and awareness. Being a geek, understanding viruses seems to come naturally to me, so I figured I would share information about them with others.
