I want to ask, how do I make it so that my wireless is auto.

In the "Wireless Network Connection" page where it lists all the wireless networks my computer can detect and i click on settings/favourite settings (the one with the star), then in the wireless tab, there is that check box on left top corner which says "use windows as my default wireless selction" or soemthing like that. How do i keep that box checked. Everytime i restart my computer, that box is unchekced and i am connected to someone else networt, I have to connect to my network manually. How do i fix this problem?


Is Spybot a good way of seeing/preventing if i've been hacked? Or are there better softwares? And is the default windows XP firewall sufficient?

Thank you

Try Nr. 30 left hand side. Attention this is a registry tweak!!!! Back up your registry PLease look at this guide How to back up your registry prior to doing so

Spybot is a anti spyware program. Please check the link for the Spybot S & D manual in my sig. You should install an anti virus software as well as a firewall. There are some free ones. I have used AVG Anti virus and Zone Alarm as a firewall. Check the freeware link in my sig for more free safety programs
