    What do you use to keep your PC secure, other than Anti-Virus software?

    PC Security Not having read GanjaSMK's comments I have recently stumbled upon Trend Micro's Internet Security. I didn't see a free version but only the pay one. It is a little pricy at $69.00 per year on one PC, but it does seem to do a very good job. I do find that it struggles with...

    Hi spearace, I have taken note of your suggestions and copied them to a document for referral. I will give them a try. I just need something to bridge the gap between now and October 22. Who knows, I might like these better than what I have been using and just go on with them. Just a...

    What do you use to keep your PC secure, other than Anti-Virus software?

    Hi Kougar, You're right about Spybot and Ad-Aware. I am using AVG because ZoneAlarm which was working just fine on XP is not compatible with Windows 7 at this time and won't be until the October 22 release date. AVG seems to be quite reliable and also quite expensive. After the trial...

    Asus Drivers for Windows 7 - Discussion

    Thank you clifford_cooley for your advice. I know that my PC is really obsolete. It ran XP just fine and I liked the system, but I hated what I was hearing and observing about Vista. I felt safe staying with XP, but I think that there will be much less resistance to Windows 7 than there was...

    Asus Drivers for Windows 7 - Discussion

    Asus Drivers for Windows 7 Hi Thrax, Thank you for your confirmation of what I have been thinking for a long time. Originally I was just going to use XP until I was forced to use Vista. But now that Windows 7 has arrived I realize that people will probably buy this OS instead of resisting...

    Security I have been using ZoneAlarm Security Suite for two years now as a paid subscription. It used to be a freeware program until Checkpoint Software bought them up. However, Checkpoint improved ZoneAlarm so much so that I never have problems with trojans or viruses. It picks up trackiing...
