Why This Guide is Important to You and Everyone You Know!
Has your computer ever been compromised by any type of threat from the internet such as a virus, malware, or spyware? What about your friends, co-workers, or a family member’s computer? Remember how much of a hassle it was to remove or fix? Maybe a keylogger even stole credit card or other sensitive information. Perhaps the only fix was to reinstall the operating system and all the programs. Or maybe the local computer shop charged $200 to get it cleaned up!
The purpose of this guide, the Netizen Guide, is to help ensure everyone and every computer on the internet can be protected from practically every type of threat and every angle of attack. Do not be intimidated! This guide is designed for all levels of computer users. Our straightforward but concise explanations and step-by-step instructions on how to achieve Complete Internet Security are in plain English and require no special knowledge about computers or the internet.
Imagine being protected from virtually every type of threat and every angle of attack on the internet!
So many programs promise this, many of them are good, but none can actually do it alone and none should be trusted to do it alone, simply because of the number and variety of threats… Since the beginning of the internet, computer viruses, worms, spyware, malware, and every other type of threat has grown exponentially alongside the security utilities that counter them. Today it is almost unimaginable to safely use the internet without some type of active antivirus protection. However, just one or two security programs is hardly sufficient anymore… There is virtually no threat that cannot be protected against but the key is getting the proper protection in the first place and the Netizen Guide is here to help!
– You do not need a degree in Information Security!
This Guide is written for the in plain English for the average Netizen as well as her or his grandmother.
– You do not need to spend weeks or months of research locked in an ivory tower, learning about how to stop every type of threat!
We cover the four fundamental categories for security programs to defend you against all angles of attack and the entire guide will probably take 20 minutes of your time or less!
– You do not need a supercomputer or a small fortune to purchase and run all the required applications.
Many, or potentially all of the types of programs cover have free versions (although we often recommend the paid versions where applicable). Additionally, most of the recommended programs will not be actively running on your computer until you need them and those that are, are very light on your system’s resources.
So there you have it…
Unless you enjoy the experience of cleaning up an infected computer then we will most likely save you some major headaches down the road. The Netizen Guide is free, it is short, concise, and to-the-point, it is easy to understand, many (potentially all) of the programs are free, and they will have little-to-no impact on the performance of your computer.
So without further ado, proceed to the Netizen Guide to The Best Internet Security of 2011!
