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.

"Spend more time reading how to cover your own butt because Windows sucks then you do actually enjoying your PC."

Umm... no. Depending on how "filthy" the machine is, it might take some time to clean it up and lock it down, but after that weekly anti-spyware scans should be enough. Contrary to what your trollish screen name claims, Windows is a decent platform that allows users to be productive and enjoy their PC. Security, after all, exists mainly between the chair and the keyboard.
