Security in your computer
I know this is not exactly a tutorial or scrapbooking related, but today again I have read of someone having a computer crash and losing kits. So I have thought it could be a good idea to post some tips, ideas or articles related to just computer maintenance, so we could avoid computer crashes or in the worse case scenario at least not losing either kits, photos, layouts or other documents.

This a very interesting article I have just finished reading from the CNET website. It talks about securing your computer and gives you alternatives to free Firewall, antivirus, spyware and other security programs. So now there is no excuse to have a computer that might be at risk of losing files due to security problems

Security Starter Kit: Protecting your PC

If anyone has any doubt with the article or anything related to the issues dealt by the article, just post them here, so someone can help. :)

For so many of us, our computers are a LIFELINE. I can't stress enough how important it is (especially since we tend to download a LOT as scrap-surfers) that we properly protect our computers... not just from viruses in our email, but from all different sources of malicious viruses, hackerware, spyware, etc. This is a great resource for all of us. Thank you, Olga!

Great Topic
CNET is a great resource I have been using them since the 1990s. Always Good Advice, from Purchases, Protection & Fun Software.
I applaud you stepping out to bring them to the Digi Scrapper Community!
Thanks Again ;)

I have begun storing all of my digiscrapping supplies on an external hard drive. I have a small one that runs off of my computer. I download everything to it so if the old hard drive crashes.... I still have all my files.
