What should I do to keep my new laptop as save as possible?

by on December 30, 2011

Q: I’m getting a new laptop soon and want to keep it as protected as possible. I plan on installing Avira Personal edition, Comodo BOClean, Comodo memory firewall and SUPER Antispyware, and Spybot.
Will these do the trick and do I need anything else?

    Don’t go overboard on security software, you’ll just be wasting money.

    To deal w/ theft, consider installing http://preyproject.com/

    With regards to security software, just install Microsoft Security Essentials, and browse the web with Chrome for the best results in staying safe.

    Also, keep your important data backed up with a dropbox account. Drop your laptop once and all your data could be toast!
