Computer Security

As a result of visiting some of the schools in the district, I have noticed that some computers seem to be infected with viruses or spyware. It is essential that everyone has good firewalls and anti-spyware and anti-hacking software installed in computers that are connected to the Internet.

If you buy some of the computer magazines, such as Windows XP, you get free software that helps keep your computer free of viruses and other nasties.
