If you have a lot of money tied up in btc its not a bad idea to create a key pair in a totally secure environment and make sure the private key never touches a possibly dirty pc.

Got my wallet encrypted with true-crypt after reading this.

Looking for more secure ways to keep wallet safe though, not ready to pay 0.00001 BTC for online wallet lol.  Tongue

Come on guys, a bit of encryption is ok, but it does't make sense
to go paranoid on the wallet for then use it to pay for a good/service
never fully guaranteed (just as in a non-bitcoin context).

Just have present, when downloading software or visiting sites that
no machine/mechanism exists which returns 2BTC for 1BTC.
Just grandmas give money for free to their grandchilds.

And don't be so scared, the best way to avoid the steal of your coins
is to spend them, so go buying beautiful things and be happy!

Come to munofar.com and Win 4 X YOUR BET with the Three Coin game!

If you are sensible and use AV regularly and dont visit dodgy sites you should be ok.  Most people dont have thousands of BTC lying around anyway!
