    Protection Devices

    What basic protection devices would you people recomend for your computer? Besides just that what methods of protection would you also suggest?

    I use Zone Alarm, but is it really necesary to run it if you dont leave your computer on for that long of periods? What other things besides that should I look into, what about proxy's for privacy?

    What do you think?

    Point me in the right direction!

    its not necessary to lock you doors if your home most of the time but it is a good idea to do so, especially when you go out.

    if privacy is a concern of yours (it is mine), a proxy isn't a bad idea, as long as your sure the owners of the proxy arn't going to sell your info.
    You should get ad-aware to find and delete spyware and bugnosis to warn you of web-bugs. they're both freeware. SamSpade, another freeware product is also very handy to have.
