Microsoft Windows is One of The Major Operating System available at Many Home and Workplace, Only Reason is it is Way More Easy Than Other Operating Systems and Many Softwares are Available and Can be Easily Downloaded over Internet.
Windows OS Has a Major Problem , You will Get a Lots Of Virus, Daily Lots Viruses are Created For Windows Operating System. Whenever i Want to Transfer Files to my PC i have to scan with antivirus program, Oh Crap All Antivirus Programs wont Clear All Even if you Purchase for Money and still Virus Affects your System.
My PC will Be at Great Risk When i want to Transfer Data From My College LAB, Yes That Sucks! NO Antivirus Program will be Active and Lots of Virus is Ready at Free of Cost 🙂 ! If i Scan Using any Antivirus Program in my PC, Virus Count will Go to 30+ and it is not Healed or Removed Properly, If You Get More Virus in PC Your Windows Will Crash easily and There Is a Chance of Loosing All Your Data Stored on Your System!
I Had the Same Situation, All my Data are in The Drive Where Windows OS is Installed and i cant loose them by Formatting the PC, That Time Ubuntu Helped me to Backup My Data and i Use My Ubuntu to kill the virus Without installing it in my PC .
