10 Ways to Secure Your PC
BY Kevin Rose 
Keep your computer safe and secure.
While you're enjoying that broadband connection, downloading files, watching Web videos, flipping from webpage to webpage, your computer is sitting there ripe for the picking by hackers looking for fresh victims.

Before you get hacked, protect yourself. Here are my top ten ways to secure your computer.
  1. Turn off file sharing
    File sharing is one of the first things a hacker looks for to access your computer.

  2. Install a firewall
    Even the built-in Windows XP firewall is better than nothing.
  3. Scan for spyware
    Kill that spyware and adware with my two favorites,
    Ad-aware and Spybot Search & Destroy.
  4. Antivirus
    My favorite antivirus program is
    Norton AntiVirus. If you want to save cash try the free AVG Anti-Virus.
  5. OS updates
    Update your operating system frequently. Always run the latest patches and drivers for your system.

  6. Security scanner
    Run some type of outside security scanner on your machine. I recommend the demo version of
    Retina or the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.
  7. Secure instant messengers
    Everyone wants to keep their IM conversations private. Try
    Trillian Pro for 128-bit encrypted AIM and ICQ conversations.
  8. Secure email
    Hotmail get hacked again? Try
    Hushmail. Hushmail uses 2048-bit encryption to keep your email safe and sound. Hushmail has been around for ages and I've heard many great things about it.
  9. Secure your files
    Looking for a local file encryption solution? Get
    PGP Disk to encrypt all your sensitive files. Store your files in the ThumbDrive Touch, a USB drive that uses biometrics in a built-in fingerprint reader to protect your data.
  10. Safe passwords
    Keep your passwords safe, secure and uncrackable with
    Personal Vault.
