    windows 8.1

    I really appreciate the responses. Thank's pparks1 for the thoughts. I don't open attachments in email unless I know it's on the way. Like you said, I haven't ever really had an infection more than a popup thing. Thanks!!!! I try to be careful.

    Windows 8.1 Update 1

    If you are really that concerned with electronic banking you could use a linux live dvd/ usb stick. This way you can be 100 % sure that your system is not infected. Another, slightly less secure solution would be to either install a linux distribution to dual boot or a virtual machine with Linux. That's what I do for internet browsing, I always browse the web using Virtualbox and Linux Mint 17.1.
