I'm really new to having my own computer and don't know a lot of technical stuff at all. Have just bought an Amilo Pro 2010 and am trying to make sure I cover the security angles before I set it up for the internet. It has it's own firewall and the sales patter says it has F-secure anti virus but I'm not so sure, how do I go about checking? Also it says it needs a DVD decoder to play a DVD, how do I get this? Any advise gratefully received, the simpler the better?
You usualy get DVD playing software with the DVD player - once you go online go to www. google.co .uk (without the spaces) and type in "free dvd player" to find a player.
Hover your mouse over the icons nect to the time, if any of them say anything about f-prot or anti-virus or firewall, double click it to see the settings.
You need at least a firewall and an anti-virus. If you dont have them you can get free versions from (again without the spaces) click here .com (anti-virus) and www .zonealarm.com (firewall). You should also get an anti-malware program, go to the microsoft (.com) page and type spyware into the search box for a link to their product
