There are plenty of AARP members who do this sort of thing every 12-18 months: 1) Computer slows to a crawl, pop-up ads are everywhere, computer becomes useless (to them). 2) Buy new computer. 3) Kids get the new computer hooked up. 4) Happy! Forwarding jokes, cute stories, and terror alerts! 5) Get infected. 6) Repeat.
