Calendar of Updates has introduced its first in a series of online Computer courses to help you learn about and use your computer in a safe manner. The course is designed from the ground up to be used by a beginning computer user and I recommend everyone take a look at it. The link to the course can be found below.

Thank you for posting this course announcement and for all of your support.
When we began planning the course we considered a one page course with a dozen links to the great tutorials that are at bleepingcomputer.com.
Sadly, novices probably would have gotten lost or confused, despite the clear and straight forward presentation found here.
With this in mind, we decided to go after an overlooked segment of computer users. The real beginners. The ones who don't know what a forum is, don't know what a download mirror is and, most of all, don't know what malware is.
We tried to built a very simple course that (hopefully) wont confuse anyone.

If you are reading this, the course probably isn't for you. Chances are you know more about malware detection and prevention than I do!
I'll bet, however, you know someone who could benefit from such a course. An aunt, a nephew, a neighbor or a co-worker...someone who doesn't know what can happen to them as they (somewhat blindly) travel around the internet.

Please send them to this link
