Is there a browser and/or operating system that absolutely can't get a virus?

    Nothing is "absolute" when it comes to a virus or other malicious software.  However, a "computer virus", like a biological virus, typically only spreads by infection via contact of some sort. If your computer is completely isolated from others, it will be immune to viruses.

    There is not any computer system, that could not be hack, but still we try to prevent it from hackers by proper maintenance.

    None. As long as it runs on a computer, it can be infected with a virus.

    No, technically any sort of system can get a "virus" there are just those that are less of a a target and more secure, apple and linux for instance are lower use so less of a target for people to try to hack. Nothing is immune, a virus is just code that hasnt been patched to stop it working.

      "Code that hasnt been patched to stop it working"??  That is not the definition of "virus".

    Something like Linux or Chrome OS, but it's not because they can't get viruses it's because you can't really install anything on it.  People get viruses because they install random junk off the internet and click on e-mail attachments they shouldn't.

    • Although Chrome CAN run apps. And linux can run "source code" & shell commands.

    No. The closest is using linux as your OS and Firefox as the browser.

      There are also proprietary systems that are substantially more immune to attacks than off-the-shelf consumer stuff.
