Keeping Your Computer Safe on the Internet [FREE]

These days the very concept of “Internet Safety” seems like an oxymoron.

In this FREE 99 page ebook I summarize popular articles from Ask Leo! covering the basics – the things you must do, the software you must run and the concepts you need to be aware of – to keep your computer and your data safe as you use the internet.

It’s not hard, and once things are in place it’s not even time consuming.

Excellent advice from an impeccably reputable source.  Don’t even think about not downloading and reading it!
