Basic Computer Security for the Home User

The Shed Before I start with a list of do’s and don’ts for the home computer user, please allow me to tell you a little bit about yourself. You are a mom, a dad, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, brother, sister, only child, neighbour, friend, rocker, jazz enthusiast, student, teacher, banker, purchasing agent, and somewhere between the age of 10 and 90 or so.

Regardless of which tag or tags describe you, there is one thing each of you have in common; that commonality being a home computer user. We all know that the cost of computers has come down over the years but that is no reason to jeopardize your investment.

So let’s talk about basic computer security to protect your computer. Using the analogy that I started this blog with:

The same applies to your computer.
My look on it….Just like leaving your Car and not locking it.

What are the basics needs to fence in your computer?
