And as near as I can tell, the only difference between anti-virus software and an actual virus is that you pay money to deliberately infect your system with anti-virus software which will render it sluggish and useless just like the viruses it claims to protect you from. (Or with the recent Norton debacle in China, will completely break your computer).

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Yeah, but the way you can almost always guarantee a virus-free computer is by putting up with that sluggishness while the virus checker thing literally examines the entire page you are atempting to download. Damned if you do, and damned if you don't, it would seem. PAT]
