    Everybody must read this!!!!!

    A few days ago I had some problems with my computer and I thought I just got a virus or something even though I have Nortons its only 95%. Long story short I got hacked by a little computer nerd! He screwed up alot of stuff, so don't let it happen to you go here and cover your ass. Here you can down load a free fire wall, by the way the computer lady said that in the last 4 months it has gotten really bad, so do it. Or get a fire wall somewhere!!!!

    Everyone should have a firewall. Some routers come with a firewall installed but its better to have the protection on your computer as well. cygate, kerio, norton are among some of the decent firewalls out there. Just make sure that your firewall doesnt set certain ports open as default, or allow certain programs access by default. Be sure to go into the program and set the rules ( permission for each program etc) manually.

    virus scanner like norton will tell you if you have a virus.
    if you're not having any trouble, then even if you have viruses,
    they are probably not harmful.

    firewalls are programs that block stuff from the outside and
    only allow certain traffic to your computer. mostly thats web,
    email, etc...
    the downside is that online games sometimes get blocked so
    creating game rooms (hosting a game) will not work.

    the big thing today is spyware/adware. basically, they work
    like viruses but pop up ads, casinos, mess up google and other
    search engines, and annoy people to death.
    free programs like adaware or spybot will solve those problems.

    I just got ad-ware 6.0 and its great from what I'm told. We put it on and it showed I had 250 some viruses, most spy crap on there. Mike be sure you have Nortons Anti-virus and keep it updated and go ask for a program called Ad-ware 6.0, you then down load it and clean it out every month. If you computer ever starts to slow down or act up that most likely why.

    mike d, you should get a Firewall. It stops hackers from looking throught your hard drive when your online (unaware it's happening) also get a anti-Virus program.
