    Do not enable antivirus in BIOS setup!

    It does no real good and can cause considerable harm.

    I knew it, but there are a lot of people who don't. I rarely think of it when someone is having problems and just figured to put a reminder up for myself and others.

    Now you tell me!

    The things they never tell you when you volunteer.


    OH! BTW...It does no harm if you are lucky or ugly. I would know.

    It's rarely an option on new motherboards anyway.

    It is on my NF7-S And I've never had any problems with it - although it may well be a redundant option rather than a dangerous one.

    what exactly is the harm which most certainly will occur if one enables antivirus in the BIOS?
