With $200 dollars of antivirus software (on top of the $200 OS), incessant
reminding of users to not open email attachments or install "free"
screensavers and such, disabling vbasic on every program, daily iterations
through the windoze updating cycle, and putting the machine behind a Linux
firewall, your windows machine probably wont get zombified. Or you could just
do the reasonable thing and erase the hard drive and install Linux.
