With one major new cyberattack nearly every day, it’s official: you simply must understand viruses (and worms, Trojan horses, spyware, and their rotten relatives). Computer Viruses for Dummies has all the information you need -- and it’s easy enough for Aunt Millie, who’s always getting infected and calling you for help.
This is the whole deal: making sure your anti-virus software is running and up-to-date (it’s not always obvious); practicing safe computing to reduce your risk; setting up firewalls to keep other bad guys out; rooting out the sneaky spyware that’s infested your PC; staying up-to-date with security patches without becoming a computer pro; even protecting your handheld PDA.
