I am doing an outline for my midterm about how most users are ignorant and believe an antivirus alone is enough to protect their computer. Can someone please give me some links to some sites that may be helpful. I know you need at least a firewall, an antivirus, and an ati-spyware application, but sadly i do not know where i can find an efficient site displaying this. I need an intro, 3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion. With 2 bashes for every body paragraph and 3 points that back me up. All the sites i go to give me useles information.

See, among others, these BC Tutorials:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/keep-your-computer-safe-online/

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/understanding-spyware-browser-hijackers-and-dialers/

See this article at Microsoft:

http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/p...xp/Default.mspx

Another good site is the general information provided by US-CERT:
http://www.us-cert.gov/cas/tips/

These should give you a start, but remember: Google is your friend---"computer security".
