I will be giving a talk at the Kinnelon Public Library, this Thursday, April 25 at 7 PM, which is the 3rd of 9 such planned talks this year, roughly a month apart, on the subject of taking care of your Windows PC, new or old, with special attention in Part 3 to:
  • The difference between Free and For-Pay Internet Security (IS) Software
  • When You Need One or the Other 
  • Which Commercial Software to Buy (if you have to)
  • What Software You May Need for Additional Protection
  • What Anti-Virus and Firewall Software Can Protect You From and What It Can't
  • What to Do If You Get Infected 
  • How To Configure Your AV and Firewall (if you have to)
  • How to Take Care of Anti-Spam Software
  • What to Do On-line and What Not to Do
Ask Your Questions about Your Computer and Computer Related Problems, such as:

1) Is my machine too old? When do I need a new machine?
2) How can I "pin" that program to my Taskbar, and what is a "Gadget?"
3) Why does my computer ... ?
4) If you have a laptop with a problem, bring it along and we'll take a quick look.
5) Questions and on-the-spot diagnosis will be limited by the time available!!!

All of you Kinnelon and North Jersey people, and everybody else, are welcome to come.

Call the Kinnelon Library at 973 838 1321 and reserve a spot.

See you there!
