Windows Like a lot of people who have worked in the business, I find myself in conversations about computer security with people who are having problems or know people who have problems. I wrote this to save me from explaining the same thing over and over again to different people, and to save them the trouble of having to make notes as we talked. It was meant to be something you could give to a 'naive user' and have them be able to read and follow it more or less unaided, and while not being a complete guide, at least be something that made them more secure than before they got it.

Good article. I am going to keep a copy to hand out to a few people who seem to call me regularly. If most of the Windows users out there would read and heed this article the internet would be a much safer place and it would probably cut down on the SPAM as well. :-)

The only down side I see in this article is that it requires that "Naive" user to do a little research and a lot of reading. Chances are that because of that most will not do it.
