eard this one before? You must run antivirus software and keep it up to date or else your PC will get infected, you'll lose all your data, and you'll incur the wrath of every email correspondent you unknowingly infect because of your carelessness.

Or maybe your annual subscription of virus definitions recently expired, and you've put off renewing.
