Not surprising.  In our experience, "I'm not concerned about
security, because I don't have anything really important on the
computer" is all too common of an attiude.

Most of our users are reasonable, however.  With a little
explanation about the harm an insecure computer can cause, they
understand and accept the fact that they're not islands.

Of course, many still get infected with spyware and viruses.  At
least they're willing to have their computers repaired... better
than nothing, but still not as good as being proactive. :-/
