    Viruses/adware/spyware on Wii console.

    Just got the Internet Channel.

    Do I need to be concerned about picking up a virus, etc? If so is there anti-virus software for the Wii, freeware out there to scan?

    No, there are no Wii "viruses" or anything like that on the internet channel. Maybe a pop-up or two, but you'll be fine.

    The Wii can not get infected by adware/trogans/wtc. because
    1. No hard-drive.
    2. it's operating system can't store & write all the data from the Internet channel like a pc can.

    1. THAT WRONG
    It has a flash hard drive
    2. Kinda right
    But only about the OS bit

    Virusis are made by evil people (and microsoft) that have nothing better to do so there mainly made for the best selling OS (XP user here) there has been one for mobile phones in the past but that is mainly due to nearly everybody owning one.
