Securing Your Windows Machine

IMHO, the best way to secure a computer running Windows is to back up all your data, rip out Windows, and install Linux. But that's just MHO. If you have, or want, to run Windows, the Washington Post has a Flash presentation on securing your machine. It's long, it's tedious, it's helpful. Included are:

  • Running anti-virus software
  • Using a firewall
  • Detecting and removing spyware
  • Using Windows Update

And finally, remember to update Firefox.
