I want to buy my wife a laptop computer, she is disabled and can't sit at my desktop computer for more than a few minutes, but loves being on the computer, so I decided the time has come to do the right thing and buy her. her own wireless laptop. <s> (she is 65 years young, by the way)
I read about wireless PC's being more prone to attacks from spyware, virus's etc,etc. can anyone point me in the right direction as to what I should do to help keep the spyware and Virus's to a minimum if you know what I mean.
I haven't received the laptop yet so I haven't put it 'On-line' so to speak, is there anything I should do, before setting it up.
Any help would be much appreciated, my daughter will be installing it, as I haven't a clue.
Thank you all.
PS. I have been told I should have informed you as to what my PC is using etc.
I am using Microsoft Windows XP Pro : Version 2002 : Service pack 2 : 1.61 GHz, 512 MB of RAM : AMD Processor unknown :
I do apologise.
