Ok, so here's the deal. I don't think you're stupid.
Agree with me so far? Good, I thought you might. Now a lot of people (probably most) don't know a lot about viruses or Anti-Virus software. That doesn't need to be so, in fact it shouldn't be so.
I'm not suggesting that people should all become experts in the field but let's face it, computer viruses are a fact of life and no matter how much we wish it so they aren't going to just go away.
Now a lot is known about computer viruses and there are a lot knowledge based resources available but one may not know where to look or even what to look for - thus the creation of this page, a reference library which, while it is by no means complete, is intended to help make anti-virus information more available, more visible, and hopefully more understandable.
Many thanks to the AV researchers, the AV software reviewers, the FAQ maintainers, and so on for all the work they've done making information about viruses and the AV field available to the public at large.
