Keeping your computer secure
It is important that when using technology you keep away from those that may wish to harm or take advantage of you. It doesn't matter how long you think you will be on the Internet, any computer that accesses the web is at risk of virus infection, hackers and trojans.
We recommend that you keep your computer up-to-date with the latest anti-virus software and firewall protection. You should also remember to update your computer with the latest patches available from your operating system manufacturer.
