I have four email addresses...

1) Personal...Family and friends
2) Specifically Political Wrinkles stuff
3) Buying online and registering places (That's the one that gets spammed).
4) Rarely used, but for skeptical sites or where I want anonimity

That's the way I do it.

Well, no, not that. You should feel honored that PW is on my friends and relatives email.

Somehow when I typed that line, I knew someone would bring that up.

Hopefully these are unreal and just used to get you to spend $ for their paid for protection.

I can't understand why anyone would spend their money for a decent PC and then look for cheap or free security to keep it safe?

I have used Norton Internet Security Suite for many years now at a cost from $49.00 to $79.00 depending on if I want to bother picking up one new box at Best Buy and delete the old one and install the new one etc., etc., or spend the little bit more and have it done in minutes from their site with the new updates.

Sure some people express love and trust for a very small number of free security apps available and they might work very well.

So if your going on the cheap get the one others swear by... Period. As for me I went that way a long time ago and lost a PC. So never again...

Oh yes the best of luck working this out... And do remember it while looking for some Security.

My main security suite is cloud-based, so no large program footprint on my computer and no need to update definitions.

Lollie may it always do so... Yet as I said, "many times when a company has freeware and sells a better copy they use this 378 threats as a motive to sell the better copy."

I just gave MHO about having Security which is paid for over freeware.



Er. What does this mean { tyvm } And do I want to know..
