You two Bleepers totally ROCK! I ask for firewall advice and get a super recommendation list from Acklan for security in general plus an offer from Boopme to help set up the whole wireless thing. Thank you, thank you!
A couple more questions....Boopme...are you telling me that wireless networks "themselves" can provide some security? Is that a router function? This Clnewbie (that's half way between a newbie and cluebie, i guess) thought that wireless security was related only to the firewalls one puts up on their computers. I obviously have lots left to learn.
Acklan...a special thank you for telling me to 'run only one' on those sections of security tools you recommend. I'm already running AVG antivirus, Spybot, AdAware,Spyware Blaster on my desktop and just added them to my new laptop. Do you recommend I add all
your suggestions (except for the 'run only one' areas)?? Also, for the Online Scans recs, how do those work versus AVG for example? And should I wait to download the recs under "Trojan Removal Tool" and the others under "Removal Tools" until I have a specific problem?
Thanks again folks. This is fun! Serious!
