19. Sorry to burst the collective bubble.
I run XP professional and I have had no virus issues, ever. Of course, I do keep my patches up-to-date, as well as run AV and Zone-Alarm. I also use Spamfighter on my Outlook program, so it keeps spam and mal-ware minimized.

But don't let me piss on your cornflakes....
