My alternative methods for protecting your PC:

1. Never, under any circumstances whatsoever, turn on your computer

2. If you must ignore step one, never go online, load any new software or use floppy disks from school, college, uni, work, friends, family, pets and so on

3. If you ignore steps 1 & 2, click on the link supplied by Jester2K II to see the web page in question and follow all instrctions contained thereon to the letter

click here DSOstop is a tiny free prog which mysteriously kept me out of trouble using BB when my PC had not enough memory to support a firewall. Since Aug 03 [when fortuately I got more memory and put in Sygate] would not recommend using it without a firewall but it is a useful addition- uses no memory. Have other PCA readers used it? It would be interesting to hear their views.

My step one would be dont get your advice from Microsoft and seek independant advice. M$ advise using there own firewall for a start which only blocks incoming requests so thats half the pipe left wide open.

Canard. I have a wireless network with a desktop PC and two laptops. Would you recommend Sygate for me?
