Some folks would like you to believe that viruses are no big deal. They'd like you to believe they are a minor issue overblown in the media as a ploy to sell virus software and other such military-industrial-complex conspiracies.
While I agree that conspiracies abound it is also true that viruses are a very real danger.
You must take steps to protect yourself. Below are links to three articles which we hope will get you started on the road to Virus Self-Defense.
- Virus Protection Software
- This will help by scanning your computer for any known virus. It does not solve the problem by itself. But it is a very valuable tool in your overall solution.

- Your Own Common Sense
- A virus program nor firewall will be of much good if you do not exercise a bit of that good ol' common sense. This article will explain what we mean.
