In all fairness to the virus detection industry, there are still a
goodly number of shady characters who will install dnetc without
permission on the computers of anyone they can gain access to, and
not always via a trojan. A badly configured dnetc, particularly on a
laptop or a less-than-well-made machine can go a long way towards
toasting the poor thing. Many computers are really not okay with
running flat out 24/7.
