Keeping the new PC spyware free



Spyware Confidential has the top 10 tips to keep that new pc spyware free. Some good tips here and these should be on the checklist when setting up a new pc any time of the year…

Update antivirus and setup automatic updates. (If no AV installed, then install some – like AVG free for home users?)

Lockdown IE as explained on this page
