Yeah Spam is an issue but the BOTS and Scripting Trojans are even a larger problem.
Wish I had the "horse power" to run a virtual machine.
Old 3.2 Dual Cores with little cache just don't have it.
One can run 'um fast but they really begin to "slog down" under a heavy load of code.
With all unnecessary ports blocked and running a VM, I think one decreases their chances of getting a machine messed up. For every program and level of security one adds, it takes more and more over all computing power which increases the demand on hardware resources. Never ending circle.
no most of the viruses still work the same but with a vm you can take a snap shot before and if you get some virus or malware of some kind you can just restore it and then you are back where you started :) and they don't usually effect your actual machine
