Computer Help Links

We've received some requests for help from people concerned about computer viruses, e-mail spam, etc. Here are some links to good sources of help and information.

  • Computer Security
    • Comodo Every computer that connects to the Internet should have a firewall. Comodo is a good one that we use. They have a free version you can download for home use.

  • Viruses
    • SARC Symantec Antvirus Research Center is one of the best sources of information about viruses. They also sell Norton Antivirus.
    • There are also some free antivirus programs. The one I use is Malwarebytes.

  • Spam. No, not the luncheon meat. This refers to all the junk mail that clutters your Inbox, some of it containing viruses.
    • MailWasher This is a useful tool that allows you to preview your mail and delete unwanted spam without having to download it.
    • Break the Chain From "The Littlest Firefighter" to "Giant Mutant Cats", this is a good place to check out all those chain letters you probably get.
