BE EXTREMELY CARFUL WHAT YOU DOWNLOAD!!!!!!!!

You should, before you hook up to the internet, read and completely understand the following tutorials here at BC:

This explains the use and need of a firewall.

Steps to make your computer secure.

There are many recommended applications that you should download and install from day one. Plan to spend some time doing that, and updating your Windows from MS update; downloading the absolutely necessary security patches will take some time.

Naturally, if you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to post them in the correct forum.

Welcome to BC!

Welcome, Jonathan

I too download utilities, new anti-spyware programs
OpenSource free alternatives to commercial applications,
shareware when it's distiinctly better (which is getting to be less frequently)
and often entertain trial & error experiments using this old PC.

A lot of the questions I ask are because of those tendencies.

New games sometimes catch my eye.
Using the computer is all about enjoying those things
and we look forward to your increased visits when you get
connected at home.

:thumbsup: :flowers:
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

Be careful there Jonathan.
