Not sure if this is the right place for this; but I thought it maybe of interest to some.......

Apparently, 4.69% of PCs in Britain have some form of virus. This is a new web site run by Panda Software.

Colour-coded maps point out the physical spread of a virus around the world, plus much more...

Hope you find it interesting.

Djohn...

You're welcome

Powerless....

Could not agree more, thought it might inform more people about the viruses that are going around. Hopefully they will then install some sort of Anti-virus software. (one can only hope)

Are they sure it's not 5.29% - maybe they couldn't detect some........

DieSse...

I often wonder how these people obtain these figures........

Some viruses just sit in the background,sending themselves out in your email.

I think its reported infections. Therefore the number might be quite lower that the true figure...

"but is it possible to put a site on here that will download a nasty to you're PC"...

Does that sentence not put you on the same par as the virus writers? Glad to see you have some form of Anti-virus software on your PC, if every one did the same. Then we might just slow the spread of viruses. Unfortunately we will not stop them completly.
