Hello

 

I go by VonHazze and this is my first day as part of the Bleeping Computer community. I'm in my 40s and am just peeking my interest in computers and related technologies. I know how to use a computer but not operate it nor navigate the web safely yet, thus I found my way here though suggestions by my brother and best friend.

 

I am hoping to learn how to safely get the most out of my interaction with my laptop computer. I am grateful that this site and community is available to us all. Thank you for all the work you do for all of us, it's greatly appreciated. Not sure how well or often I will contribute here but I will do my best to be of value to this community.

 

Today I am here trying to find a firewall for my laptop. It came with a free trial for McAfee but now my subscription has ended and I am left without a firewall to protect my system. I have great faith that I will find a replacement here that will protect my navigation and wanderings through this technological maze. Thank you for allowing me to be here, it's my pleasure for sure.

Welcome to BC !

 

With regard to your firewall search - and not having one operational is not advised - see the BC section on the topic -
