Well, I don't tend to pick up viruses very often and when I do I spot them quickly. My issues stem from the tower being in a place that's rather dusty and full of pet hair, so it eventually just gives out and then I'm desperate to get a new computer and fast, lol. In fact, when I got the last one, they just phased out 7, and my only choice was 8, and I was not happy, so all is well, it's just a matter of setting it up to how I like it.
My last computer had become so unstable it froze when I downloaded 10 to it, so I guess this is a blessing? and Chris, let me know what keyboard is most similar to the G15 . My 6 key is hard to use and my shift on the right sticks. I don't especially use the G keys, but since I don't look at the keys when I'm typing, I hate switching keyboards as they all have a certain "feel" to them.
