I was spending time every week trying to keep the machine free of viruses and worms.
This guy is just obviously a newb with computers, I don't know how he could have so much stuff infecting his computer.

On the view tab, under hidden files and folders, click show hidden files and folders. Watch your desktop fill up with Office .tmp files.
Isn't there only one for each document you are viewing... or less?

I don't know how he got any attention for this =/.

I don't spend any time dealing with viruses. I do a scan of adaware once a day and rarely find more than 1 item. Usually a tracking cookie.

PhDs don't necessarily equate to security awareness and computer savvy-ness. I know people who're brilliant in theoretical stuff, but are quite *ahem* nincompoops in the practical terms.

These are things not taught in universities.
