Correct, you are the exception here.
Edit: I'm glad your neighgbors and friends are into seeing how they can prevent what's wrong. That's something positive to hear.
The people I see to fix their PCs from time to time are intersted only in getting online and downloading music. Perhaps the geographical barrier here between life in CO as opposed to NY, but I haven't met a 7 years old yet that is interested in preventing spyware. It's more about getting "Counterstrike" and "iTunes" to work.
