Maximum protection possible. Not links, but concise, sensible and
security tips from good users. Thank you.

Use a router unless you are on dial-up.
Use an _up-to-date_ anti/virus program.
Use an _up-to-date_ anti/spyware program or two or three.
Use a software firewall.
Use common sense when browsing and opening emails.
Use alternate programs for browsing and email and newsgroups. (no IE or
Outlook or OE)
Turn 'sharing' off.
These should keep _most_ of the 'nasties' at bay.
We apologize for the inconvenience
