I shall be taking delivery of a new computer loaded with XP. Is there any problems I should be aware of when operating?

Thanks in anticipation,

Yep, just the usual...

1) Download and instal a virus-tool ( click here or click here )
2) Download and install spyware program ( Search & Destroy is good)

3) Download XP-AntiSpy and turn off all those nasty XP tracking and recording tools
