How to...Protect your computer

Recommended Posts

Protecting your computer doesn't have to be an ongoing expense these days. There is more than enough quality protection available for free if you know where to find it. That's right, zilch, zero, gratis. 

From the list below, choose one anti-virus program and one firewall (any more than one of each may cause conflicts and performance issues). Then take any number of privacy and anti-spyware/trojan programs...

Of course all software is used entirely at your own risk.

Post any other good software you know and the list will be updated.

 

 

Hat tip to the old board's Scooter for their hard work in the original post.
