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 thing for you, 2K and XP have automatic updates. ;) Just set it up to automatically download and install updates at a time you KNOW their computer will be on, and no more problems.

Hummmmm, problem with that is what do you do (Like now with Microsoft Security Advisory 912840) when there is no patch?

Unplug the thing or pray you don't get jacked? LOL!

Good luck!
