Protecting Your Computer

It is important to protect your computer when accessing the internet.

There are several threats waiting for the unsuspecting visitor.

Viruses, Spyware, Adware, Hackers, Spamers and Identity thieves are ready to pounce on anyone that is not protected or is prepared to give them the information they need.

Recent Operating System updates and security patches will help a little, but will not stop most of the determined attackers, if you are not careful.

Also bear in mind that it is mainly the newer systems with Windows 2000, Windows 2003 and Windows XP that are most at risk. It has been proven that they can be infected in less than 40 seconds on the Internet.
