Hello, I am about to connect my new and expensive laptop to the internet with the following precautions (list follows) and I was wondering whether I need/should do anything else to make sure my computer won't get hacked/virus etc
1. Zone Alarm - free edition 2. AVG Anti-Virus (free edition) 3. Install Windows Defender 4. Update OS with relevant Windows updates
Any advice would be appreciated
Also, is there a good practical wireless security guide I can download?
While some would chose other options, I agree with GANDALF <|:-)> that you've selected well. I would however suggest two additions SpywareBlaster click here a passive blocking tool that prevents a lot of Spy/Adware ever latching on to your system, without using system resources and the Firefox browser click here , not security software as such, but less susceptible to spyware than IE6.
