Protection against Malware, Spyware, Viruses and Malicious Software is a MUST today. The tools offered here provide a measure of security against threats to your system FREE. NO claim that these tools provide 100% protection, such claims would be irresponsible and such tools do not exist. The struggle against evil is constant and keeping tools as current as possible is imperative.

DO NOT click links in e-mail messages from unknown people.
The real content of the link in the message might be a virus.
DO keep your computer protected with an antivirus and/or a security suite.
DO Backup your data files, precious pictures regularly (frequency depends on how often your data changes) at least monthly and keep a copy off site if possible (safety deposit box, at a close realive's/friend's or - NOT as ideal a private spot at your place of work under lock and key). Large capacity Thumb Drives (USB sticks) are most reasonably priced and are ideal for backups.
