How good is WINE at running Windows software on Linux? Good enough to get infected (Download Squad)

Oct 27th 2009 1:55PM Because the virus was designed to infect the windows platform only his/your wine directory would be effected and to fix the problem you would simply uninstall wine and or remove your .wine directory. Removing wine is not the only solution - you could also try removing the virus as you would in windows.

For safer use, dont associate wine with executables ( .exe's)....dont associate it with anything for that matter. Even without the associations you can still run your apps manually and use shortcut / launchers.

I dont know why AVG seems so much more popular than Avast!, the couple times I tested it myself (granted it was a long time ago) it, like otheres, effected system performance whereas with Avast! I have never had any issues.

Also - I have not tested Microsofts Security Essentials but recommended it to a friend who in which loves it.
