Windows 3.1 would have been installed on top of a standalone version of MS-DOS. All standalone versions of MS-DOS used FAT12 or FAT16. It is possible to run Windows 3.1 on top of later versions of MS-DOS with a FAT32 file system, but this would have been extremely uncommon.

LimeWire may give a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7 and AVG virus protection viruses. This is because no matter what the person is downloading to the computer, unless it is from a trusted source, anything may be in the file. LimeWire has been known to give many computers viruses.

There have been 6 major versions. As of the time of this writing, the current stable release is Windows 7 (however, note that the internal version number is actually NT 6.1). Windows 8 (version NT 6.2) is currently in development. For most major versions, there have been a few "minor" versions. This was evident in the name up to Windows 3.x. However, commercial branding has made the less evident since the introduction of Windows 95, which shared the same major version number (which was 4.x) with Windows 98 and Windows Me, for example. Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 all were version NT 5.x. And finally, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2008 are all version NT 6.x. To complicate things a little further, Microsoft started developing Windows NT, geared more toward business users, alongside the main line of Windows versions. This began with the initial release of Windows NT 3.1 in 1993. The Windows NT line was merged into (or, perhaps more properly, transformed into) the main line of Windows releases beginning with NT 5.1, also known as Windows XP. This was the first version of Windows NT to feature both Home and Professional editions, making it successor to both Windows 2000 (business oriented) and Windows Me (consumer oriented).

The Windows operating system has been attacked the most by viruses. That is not so much because it is insecure as much as it is popular. If you were a malicious hacker and you only had time to target a single operating system, then you would likely choose the one with the most users.

I have been working with all versions of windows applications and I have never had any of them have problems with a processor. The limitations I guess would be the amount of processors that can be put on the motherboard. In other words I can't think of any limitations.

MSDOS was the original operating system for the IBM PC. It has since been replaced in current versions of Windows by a scripting utility, as Windows is now a complete operating system and does not need MSDOS anymore.

One can never know how many vulnerabilities a piece of software has. One can only know how many have been found, and how many have been fixed. Different versions of Windows have different numbers of known vulnerabilities. According to Secunia, Windows XP Home Edition has 361 known vulnerabilities, of which about 40 are unpatched. Windows Vista has 213 known vulnerabilities, of which 11 are unpatched. Windows 7 has 57 known vulnerabilities, of which 5 are unpatched.

The exact date of the discovery of viruses is unknown. However, many scientists believe that viruses have been around for over 3. 8 billion years.
