Today’s ultra-connected computing world allows PC users to access an incredible array of applications, information portals, and multimedia options. It also allows an incredible array of threats ? viruses, worms, spyware, and others ? to access a user’s PC. Though the range of threats sounds overwhelming, it needn’t be. Securing Your PC in Easy Steps walks readers through a series of vital security measures. It explains how to guard against malware, adware, Trojan horses, and other insidious threats, how to force other users of the PC to choose strong passwords, how to configure a firewall, how to lock down specific areas of the computer, and other important topics. By following the steps, PC users can close the door on security threats, minimize the risk of infection and get down to the serious business of enjoying their time at the computer safely and without worry.
