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.

Oh, a so simple procedure por people who never update your windows, antivirus and don't use firewalls...

I have an alternative, safer and simple procedure for them:

1- Put the CD #1 of any linux distribution on CDROM drive and reboot the computer
2- Follow the instructions to wipe, format and create necessary partitions
3- Follow the instructions to complete the linux installation
4- Begin to use and be happy !

I have better solutions:

A: Get a tech geek to set you up with Linux on a machine.
B: Buy a Mac
