A small tip with big advise on securing Windows

Net-Security.org’s Mirko Zorz writes that one of the best sources of information for users of broadband internet access is Microsoft:
Although many are quick to accuse Microsoft of being at the heart of the computer security problem, I think the company has provided a decent solution for nontechnical users who want to secure their PCs. That solution is the “Microsoft Security Protect your PC” Web site at http://www.microsoft.com/security/protect. The Web site explains to the nontechnical (and non-networked) user how to use an Internet firewall, update the computer, and use antivirus software. Information on the site supports all current Windows desktop client OSs, in addition to the legacy 32-bit Windows OSs (Windows NT and Windows 9x). The scope of information the site provides gives you an idea about how important Microsoft thinks security is: Try finding new support tools for those legacy OSs anywhere else on Microsoft’s site
