I do a lot of work on customers PC's and each time I use my flash stick it ends up riddle with Trojans  :huh: I don't know how companies cannot take better care of their networks  :hmm:

Most networks are pretty poorly set up in my experience.

Yes I must agree with you and I don't know about your side but the IT people this side all seem to have attitudes.  683 infections found so far on my flash disk  :whistle: I think I must get myself another small flash disk and just have the stuff on it I know I will be working with at that customer

I used to sit sort of in the IT department where I used to work (quasi-freelance these days), and all the USB ports were disabled in all the machines, and none of the machines had CD drives.

It's old, really! 1991 I think. On the Atari ST. Best anti-virus of its kind at the time.
