Introduction
 This handbook is designed to help you find ways to protectyour Windows XP/Vista/7 PC and ensure your data is safe. I getcountless emails from site visitors who ask about the best anti-virus software, firewall program, backup utilities etc. and thereare often questions in the forums of a similar nature. I set up PCs for companies, friends, and family; the advice Igive in this manual is what I use when building any PC. My tipsare tried and tested and have left hundreds of people satisfiedwith the way their computer works. I hope you too can followthese instructions and enjoy an error-free, spyware-free, andspeedy PC. The purpose of this book is not to define the ultimate solution;its purpose is to give you simple, unbiased advice on what I’vefound to be the best options out there. In this handbook, I onlygive advice and share programs that I’ve used for at least ayear. Some programs seem good when you first use them, butquickly annoy you or slow down your PC.If you have any questions about PC security or PCs in general,you can head toWindows Forums where you’ll find friendly, knowledgeable members who are happy to assist in yourlearning. If you disagree with anything in this handbook, please join us also and share your solutions.
Notational Conventions
In this handbook, I have used these notational conventions:
Italic: 
Text from the current dialogue you are working with.
Bold
: the name of a keyboard key.
Italic bold:
something you type as shown, e.g.,
regedit
. Unlessotherwise specified, you can use uppercase or lowercase letter.Click: move the cursor to the referenced item and press the leftmouse button.Press: push on a keyboard key.Select: choose from a list.Blue Links: Links to external websites.
Security 101
Many terms in this handbook may be new to you; I make everyeffort to explain things in a simple manner that is easy todigest. Before we begin with solutions, I present some keyterms and phrases that will assist you as you work your waythrough the rest of this handbook. These phrases arecommonly thrown out in conversation and in online discussionforums, but it’s hard to know exactly what they mean.
Malware
– The generic term used for all forms of softwaredesigned with malicious intent. Viruses, worms, spyware etc.are all forms of malware. The term
virus 
is often used whenmalware should really be used as it describes all forms of malicious software.
Virus
– A computer virus acts very much like a human virus.Human viruses are spread, via thumb drives, floppy discs,network connections etc., to other PCs. Viruses need a host(like a free screensaver program) to spread. By pure definition:a virus has the ability to spread itself, via a host, to othercomputers.
Worm
– A worm is much like a virus. The key difference isworms can spread between PCs without a host (freescreensaver program, downloaded game etc.) These programs
