My Statement of Faith


My son, Aaron, helped me put together "Personal Computer Help." He's the Alpha-Geek in my house, I call him when I need computer technical help. He's just 18, and knows these things so well, it scares me! ;-)

Ad-ware and Spy-ware are the fastest growing computer threats on the internet today. There are many ways to protect your computer from these types of programs.

Get Firefox!

Mozilla Firefox is an Open Source alternative to Internet Explorer. Very secure against Ad-ware and Spy-ware, it also includes a powerful pop-up blocker, and is infinitely customizable through extentions found at the Mozilla website.

Something I have learned recently, don't install WEATHERBUG on your computer! It allows so much adware, it's not funny. A better source for desktop weather is Accuweather.com. You can get it by going to addons.mozilla.org. You can find all kinds of great add ons for YOUR new Mozilla suite!

Lavasoft Ad-awareSE
Ad-awareSE is a powerful ad-ware and spy-ware removal tool. One of several good programs to use to remove and prevent ad-ware.

Spybot Search & Destroy
Another powerful removal tool. Use along side Ad-awareSE to be sure you remove all possible threats.
