Good advice. Even a not so geek can check their computer online, but one must be careful do it considering the malicious programmes that creep into the systems when checked online.

Everything that you said is true, but the one thing that people need to be aware of is that many of the so-called free programs can cause you more problems than they solve. Many hackers use these programs to gain access to your computer and then install all sorts of viruses and other malware on your system. The safest route to take is to buy a program on CD from a reputable software company and then install it on your computer from the disk. True, it will not be free, but it will be safe, and another advantage is that you will be able to use the program even if you do not have access to the Internet at the time.

To pick the genuine from the fake is a tough job indeed. I will go with Jerry with so many viruses and malwares floating around through free programs available online - siva
