Your computer can never be absolutely safe.
However keeping your computer clean and up to date can go a long way:
Add a heavy dose of common sense computing and your computer is about as
secure as possible.
As for rebooting, if a hacker has access before and nothing else changes,
the hacker probably still has access.
