The most innocuous looking things on the internet can be the most deadly, take this thread here for instance.  While researching dog breeds a popup window appeared before one of our members, along with an ActiveX warning for a movie, and with just a single click of the mouse a trojan made it’s self at home.   It’s not like he is the only one, either. 

Of course, in order to get infected you need a working computer; as long as the hard drives referred to in this thread stay broken, you can guarantee the system is 100% protected.  Unfortunately, when problems arise in your external storage, you get all the frustration and none of the safety benefits. 

Lastly, if you haven’t seen what Electric Bill did to his Dodge, check it out and let him know what you think.
