Internet Security for the Windows Home and Small Business User -- Talk at the Kinnelon Library, Wed. April 26, 2017 at 7 PM

This is Your Laptop on Drugs, er, Fire

So You Have a Few Choices -- Top or Bottom!
OK -- so your PC won't burn up if it gets infected but you may wish it had, especially if you run into Ransomware, or Hacked Accounts and eMail.

What should you do???

Well, first, even before installing Internet Security, you SHOULD BE  BACKED UP. The last best chance you have in case of a hopelessly compromised machine is a Complete Restore!!!

We will cover McAfee LiveSafe because it is a good program and is FREE for those of us with Cable Internet and MalwareBytes Free and Premium, because dual belt and suspenders protection is a good idea with Security Software. 

If your Internet Provider does not provide McAfee free, it may offer another from the Recommended Software in the PC Mag list above. All of the Editor's Choices are fine. Especially if you have MalwareBytes as well.

Verizon will charge you $7 per month. Wow! Anyway ... 

We will also discuss the part that Bootable Backups can play in not only disaster recovery such as drive failure, but also in recovering from catastrophic infection. It is nice to have an uninfected backup of your system disk when your system disk IS INFECTED!

As usual we will take questions and deal with issues at the end of the talk.

See you there!
