how about use an OS that isn't highly susceptable to viruses instead, like Linux?

I agree, just because you have a strong password does not mean that you are fully protected. I thought I had a good password but my computer was hit with a virus and a good amount of personal data was stolen. I contacted Turn-Key Technologies at http://www.turn-keytechnologies.com/Additiona... for their expertise in computer and network security and they were able to make sure my network has the best security possible.
