Computer security has many facets.  My basic recommendations for a home user are the following:   * Use a good brand of router, do not rely upon what the telco provided you to be secure.

@Tails0nEmaybe try asking here  @Dirty_habiTis pretty good with the ‘puters

well first off you should have yer media/ most valuable data on a separate hard drive or at least a separate partition


if you dont yer fault get the ol cd/dvd -r's and start making backups


on how to boot to cd is depenedent on the kind of bios you have on yer computer most common its going to be f2 key when the computer boots up you should see some type of prompt stating press ( ) to enter BIOS when you get into the bios select boot order and select cd exit and save do not touch anything else or you will be fucked and have a brick on yer hands


if the f2 key does not work try esc/ del or f1

Best Free Anti-Virus Software


If you are looking for the best possible protection my top recommendation is Avira AntiVir Personal Edition Classic [1]. Although its detection rate is outstanding there are some reservations. First it lacks email scanning; this is only available in the paid version. That means that AntiVir won't warn you about any infected emails before you open them. However should you open an infected email then AntiVir will still spring into action, so not having an email scanner doesn't mean you are not protected from email based infections. My second reservation is that AntiVir is quite an intrusive product - you will certainly be well aware of its presence. Finally AntiVir Personal Edition Classic has a time limited license. It is renewable but be aware you will have to periodically go through the hoops.


If you not prepared to accept the drawbacks to AntiVir I would suggest either AVG Antivirus 7 Free Edition [2] or the Avast! scanner [3]. Neither is quite as effective in detection as AntiVir however they are both more complete products and less intrusive in use.


AVG Free has been continuously refined since it was first released in 1991 and the recently released V7.5 makes further improvements to an already solid product. Additionally, it's relatively small, light on resources, has regular automatic updates and handles email scanning. There is a free and a pro version, the only difference being that the free version has a few non-critical features disabled and has no technical support other than a free user forum .


Equally effective is the free Avast! scanner [3] though its funky media player style interface is not to everyone's taste. Avast! also required periodic re-registration while AVG does not. However Avast! does not seem to suffer the signature file update problems that plague some AVG users.


AVG and Avast! are excellent free products that will meet the needs of most users. However none of these offer the best malware detection available. That title belongs to commercial products like NOD32, F-Secure, the full versions of AntiVir, Kaspersky AV and others. They are however capable packages that offer the financially challenged a real alternative to the major anti-virus suites.


However if you use AVG and Avast! in conjunction with a sandbox for surfing (see section 4) and an anti-spyware product (see section 3) you can achieve a level of protection approaching that offered by the best commercial AV products.


Further improvement is possible running regular on-demand scans with a different anti-virus product.


On-demand scans should be run regularly, at least weekly, to check for viruses and other malware that may have been missed by your main scanner.


A good option for on-demand scanning is the free version of the commercial AV product BitDefender [4]. It's a first class product with excellent detection rates but as the free version lacks an email scanner and a resident virus guard, it's only really suited for use as an on-demand scanner rather than your main AV product. There are some other limitations as well. First it has an annoying habit of detecting malware products that have been quarantined by other security products and you can't exclude these areas from subsequent scans. Secondly, it is only available on a one year non-renewable license.
