Computer Security

As soon as you introduce your computer to an external data source (Floppy, CD, Internet, bluetooth etc), you are at risk of allowing nasty things to crawl into it. Some of these nasties are worse than others but all of them are generally unwanted vistors on your machine. Some can destroy files (these are viruses) while others simply track your Internet usage and feed data back to their owners (this is Spyware). Worryingly, all of this can infest your machine without you knowing about it and too much spyware can slow your web browsing down to a snails pace.

There are things you can do to prevent things from fouling up your PC. You could install a Firewall - this is essential if you are permanently connected to another system - such as the Internet - via Broadband. Firewalls allow you to control the flow of data between external systems - helping you stop hackers from accessing your computer. Another piece of essential software is a Virus Checker, which cleans files on your PC for Viruses and if your on the web a lot, we suggest you also get a Spyware removal tool, and use it often.

Right, now how much is it gonna cost - answer NOTHING - here's the links you need
