I've seen more folks in the biz saying it won't be a big deal. I don't think the sky will fall. Guess we'll see in the morning.

As long as you keep your computer up to date it should be fine. And if you still use XP, put Windows Defender on it even if just to do it as it kills the "Antivirus 2009" and other things that plague that OS.

I run free AVG AV but did download the Microsoft onecare scanner. Everything was clean other that registry problems that it fixed.

I have kids running an old Dell on our home network - should be interesting to see what happens. My wife and I switched to Macs last year, so I know our important/financial stuff is safe. Glad I still haven't found a good reason to load Fusion or Parallels :D

The scary part about the worm is that no one know exactly what it might do. Potentially this worm has the ability to cause more damage across the world than anything ever before. It's not a joke.. So far so good on my network and I hope it stays that way..

I'm just over cautious.. and even if all the experts agree on something I will still worry a little.

That is not at all the case. Most experts have been saying all along that it's not going to do much today.
