Protect Your PC
The Internet opens up a vast world of information, entertainment and freedom. Unfortunately, it can also potentially open up your computer to a number of threats: spyware, viruses and hackers. At Sasquatch Computer, we take your security seriously and are comitted to making your web experience worry-free. With that in mind, we have compiled this list of software and tools you can use to keep your PC stable and secure.
Sasquatch Suggests:     Norton Internet Security 2005
For total system protection: Firewall, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Pop-up blocking, and more!

THREAT: Spyware and Adware
Spyware and Adware make up the biggest threat to your PC's integrity. Spyware/Adware are various programs that can sneak onto your computer when you install or run software from the Internet. Once on board, it can track your Internet usage habits, make your computer unstable and make your personal information available to third parties. Symptoms of a problem include sluggish PC performance, having your Internet Explorer home page set to an unfamiliar site and lots of pop ups.
Use these tools to detect and remove spyware!

THREAT: Computer Viruses
Another serious threat Internet users face is that of viruses: malicious programs spread from PC to PC that can completely compromise system security and stability. They generally hide out in seemingly legitimate data, such as e-mail attachments, and wait for a user to open the data and activate them. Some viruses can sneak in through security holes in system software and strike without warning. Be sure to scan for viruses if your PC is running abnormally.

THREAT: Hackers
Hackers are a serious concern for Internet users who access financial information or shopping online. Hackers are malicious individuals who exploit security holes to compromise a computer's security. A compromised computer can be used to spy on its owner, or it can be completely hijacked and used to attack other computers. Using a software firewall will protect your computer from unauthorized access, stop hackers in their tracks, and reduce the risk of getting spyware, adware and viruses.
Install a firewall to protect your PC from hacker, virus and spyware attacks!

SOLUTION: Password Management
It's not uncommon for a web surfer to have lots of passwords to remember. Dialup, e-mail, online banking, and forums often all have different access passwords. This leads to the problem of remembering all these passwords while keeping them safe from prying eyes and hackers. The solution is a password manager: software that remembers your passwords for you. You set a master password that you won't forget, and it keeps all of your passwords in a secure, extremely encrypted environment that only you can access.
Try one of these password managers and never worry about a lost password again!
