Just got a new off the shelf PC, manufactured on 13th Nov 2003. Comes with
NAV2003 and virus definitions from late 2002 installed. This is on a model
that has been shipping for less than two months. Probably is not worth 
mentioning
that windowsupdate provided with 10+ critical and 10+ other updates (the OS
had Service Pack 1 installed)

The box should have been labeled "don´t connect this device to the 
public internet".
