Agreed.  But there is another (and probably more dangerous) factor.  The 
downloading of cracks, keygens and other rubbish.  Even the P2P networks 
have nasty little things like WMA files that execute code (trojan 
downloaders for example).  A large number of people I've been in contact 
with routinely download this stuff and then wonder why they are infected.  I 
used to assist them.  Now I don't bother.  Using these tools is purely to 
circumvent paying for something that should be paid for - so hell mend them.
