It doesn't, but the current most clear & present danger (& annoyance)
comes from adware/spyware/malware.  This I think is currently a bigger
problem than viruses.  Indeed better and better software exists to fight
it, but it's yet one more chore you need to do & be aware of to keep
using your computer, because without it, adware WILL completely render a
Windows computer completely locked up and unusable.
