It starts with you!
Learn and practice safe surfing techniques.

First line of defense
A hardware type firewall.... This would be the built in firewall programs of routers even if a single computer user...put a router between you and the internet.

XP and Vista have software firewalls and are really mediocre to say the least
A top qualoty software firewall that is free is Comodo

Install a top quality anti virus program and keep it updated.
Install a top quality anti spyware/malware program and keep it updated.


Pretty simple!

************************************************** *****

There will be some arguements over this:

There is very little differences in free and/or paid for versions of security programs....Paid for are mostly refered to as "suites" because they include an all in 1 package deal and support auto updating....the problem is that they are extremely intrusive and take over your computer.

Comparisions are based more on packages than one programs....thus the better all inclusive package the better the results in the comparision charts.

I have this installed on my computers. They are all free...

spywareblaster
spybot S&D ..............I also use Adaware personal on some other computers
Ccleaner
ATF cleaner
Avira anti-virus

I update and run them regularly

Thanks for all the info you have supplied lurkswithin.

I presently have spywareblaster, spybot S&D, & Avira. I will take your advise and install the Ccleaner, ATF cleaner, and Winpatrol.

I uninstalled zone alarm and I ended up with a blue screen, coincidental - I'm not sure. Was able to reload with last best known config.

I have a router, which I have read blocks for incoming. I am going to install comodo for extra protection on outgoing.

I normally check my mail on line before I download to my computer to get rid of the junk. Unfortunately, my other half is a basic computer user and will open up outlook and receive all the junk which is why I am looking at installing spam software for outlook. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should use - free version of course.

Your ISP is usually set up with excelent filters for blocking spam. Use their IT people to work with you on using their software before it even reaches your outlook box.

Same goes for Gmail and Hotmail and MSN. There is no sense in adding programs and applications to your computer for no reason. Your isp is committed to illiminate spam as much as you are or more because of the garbage that it causes them!
