Kimm,
  Back when hacking first started and computers were being developed, the meaning of 'hacking' something, WAS creating a program.  Therefore, hackers were anyone who 'hacked away' at programs.  A modern definition of hackers is 'Someone who builds programs, or someone who breaks into a system without malicious intent'.  Crackers basically have the same skills as hackers, but use the skills WITH malicious intent.

Thank you Saruman for providing the differences.

best thing to do is to have 2 or 3 anti virus software on your computer.

i uninstalled norton and installed vexira, and found out that norton had not detected a backdoor program which was part of a file that was installed from my printer software. however, vexira is very good at scanning your system, but is not as good for checking emails. you should also get a trojan scanner for finding the pesky ones that getaway from your AVS
