- If I subscribe for the service, does it mean that my system is totally immune to virus ?
Yes and No, you should make sure first that your system is free from viruses, because several viruses will hide itself in the system and wait for the right time to do what it's supposed to do, the best scenario is you got the virus scanner and scan all your files, and then to make your life comfortable, you could subscribe for the e-virus scanner from IndoInternet.
Well I did all that, can you now guarantee that my system is now secure ? Again it's Yes and No, it depends of the way the virus spread, you're totally secure from email viruses *) but you should always check for other viruses medium like diskette, ftp, etc. Good news is Internet, in this case e-mail has the highest percentage of being the medium for virus, so yes we can say you are secured from email viruses. But for best protection you should always consider having a separate virus scanner in your PC.
