Still using Windows XP?

If you are still using Windows XP, there are a few things you can do to keep yourself relatively safe.

  1. Change you account from "Administrator" to  "Limited User".  While this stops you from installing software on your PC, it also stops Viruses and Malware from installing on your PC.
  2. Uninstall Java.  You probably don't need it and removing it eliminates the possibility of getting infected by a Java security exploit.
  3. Use the Google Chrome browser

What happens if your computer gets stolen?

My wife just recently had a friend get her computer stolen.  You know what else is missing, all of her pictures.  What a nightmare.  Carbonite is a good service, I use it and like it.  There compitiion is Mozy and I am looking forward to trying them next year.  Carbonite is $55 for unlimited data per year.

Thanks to Leo Laporte for getting me to finally try Carbonite.
