Do you have a new computer? The first thing you should do with your new computer is download all the relevant software patches and security fixes. Computers with newly installed operating systems are vulnerable to attack. Two main reasons: The installation CD is likely dozens of patches behind; and the setup code usually enables too many unsecured network features by default thus any attacker can explore numerous avenues of attack. All the latest security fixes should be applied and all unneeded network services should be turned off before you do any surfing. Search our Library for more help.
Security Alert: Internet surfing with Microsoft's Internet Explorer can be unsafe using its default security settings. For high safety, set the Tools|Internet Options|Security tab's "Internet Zone" to "High" security and then add the sites you wish excluded from this strict setting to the "Trusted Zone". Set the trusted realm to "Medium" security. The safest concept to follow is: deny for all and then permit trusted exceptions. Enterprise managers protect their businesses with this concept. A home user should have the same benefits. You are protecting your close family.
