"Antivirus hardware" is nothing new and failed miserably in the past.
Any examples? If that is true, then there must have been made a HUGE leap in functionality and effectiveness. Would intel otherwise buy McAfee for soooooooo much money? (nearly 48 dollars per stock while it hovered around.... what? 30-34 dollars? )

No, they won't.WTF? W T F ?
I'm going back to normal User mode. Which will be a bitch then I fear, since I do a lot of tinkering with my systems.
I know its a basic rule, but I had "forgotten" (ignored) it for so long.... I would have thought that the malware of these days surely would be able to infect a system while running as non-admin.
Now I'm wondering: is most malware able or unable to when running as normal user?
