Which Security System is Right For You?
There are many security systems and I have seen many of their successes and failures.  Recently I have seen both Computer Associates Internet Security and Trend Micro Pc-Cillin miss obvious viruses and spyware.  That is why I do NOT recommend these and others.  The best that I have found are Norton 360 and Zone Alarm Security Suite.

Why am I Recommending Two?
No, never two at once, just one or the other.  No security product is perfect.  Norton comes the closest with its wonderful virus and spyware detection and removal, it's easy on the system and easy on the user and it will backup your data online or to an external source.  Zone Alarm comes in second for requiring more user input and no backup.

Backup, Backup, Backup
How would it hurt you if you lost personal pictures, addresses, documents that you have on your computer?  Most of us would lose things that were very important to us.  Hard drives fail all the time.  You need a backup copy of your data.  For ease of use, use Norton 360 and a backup hard drive or their online backup.  For a more robust backup, use Acronis.

That's all for now.  Be sure to let me know if you would like any topics discussed or terms explained.  Sometimes, there is just too much geek speak!
