And iff you did get a virus, trojan etc...would you be able to know which website the virus/trojan came from?
How would I do this if I wanted to find out? Is there a way?

But let me ask you this, how do you know it was a website? Various viruses and trojans use various means of transmitting themselves, network or not, some may exploit a vulnerability or a service to get onto your machine from other places, some can come on an oem cd or an ipod or a usb thumb drive from your mate. And the ever-so-dangerous public wifi only makes it worse, because i can have a legitimate website feed you a face full of exploits, and you didnt even have to have visited it from the wifi access point. It could even be a legit-ish webiste that doesnt know its owned, that fed you the file through a flash player exploit or something... How do you know the penetration vector until you check the network logs...?
