hello, i was just wondering, when you buy a brand new computer, what precautions should you do before connecting to the internet. For example, what system mechanic programs should you buy, whats the best firewall, anti-virus, are there any tweaks you can make to ensure safety. Also, what do you think is the best firewall? I know this has probably already been asked. I've heard ZoneAlarm, OutPost, Sygate and McAfee are quite good, what about Kaspersky?
