What Free Security Programs Can Protect My PC?

You really can protect your PC with free software, but there's a price. Multiple free security programs usually aren't as easy to use as one pricey suite. Your less likely to get decent support (perhaps I should say even less likely). And they lack features like antispam and child protection which you may or may not need. All of the companies that give away security programs sell more feature-rich versions, which come with better support and additional features.

The Top 10 Internet/Email Scams

Most of you have received an email from a member of a Nigerian family with wealth.

In every variation, the scammer is promising obscenely large payments for small unskilled tasks. This scam, like most scams, is too good to be true. Yet people still fall for this money transfer con game.
It is a desperate cry for help in getting a very large sum of money out of the country. A common variation is a woman in Africa who claimed that her husband had died, and that she wanted to leave millions of dollars of his estate to a good church.

XP deadline extended toward launch of Windows 7

Microsoft has acknowledged that it will allow system builders to pay for installed copies of Windows XP through May 30, rather than shutting down the pipeline this month.

Combine this news with reports that Windows 7 may ship as early as mid-2009, and it looks like Microsoft is ready to relegate Vista to the binary scrapheap. Maybe the company's recent $300 million marketing push for Vista wasn't so successful as Microsoft claims it was.

Online Security: Dissecting an eBay Scam

If you do any form of communication over the Internet, online frauds and scams are something you always have to be wary of. I have been fortunate enough to avoid such scams as I keep my email reasonably locked down, have a relatively good “BS detector” and am overall a tad bit on the cynical side (only slightly though!… maybe…). That said, I have never been an actual singled out target for a scammer until recently
