Protect your Windows system against Internet hackers—right now!

  • Avoid worms, Trojans, viruses, and hostile Web pages

Whether you're running Windows XP, 2000, Me, 98, or 95, if you're connected to the Internet, you're at risk—especially if you're using an "always-on" cable modem or DSL connection. Now, learn exactly how to defend yourself—even if you know nothing about Internet security!

Windows Internet Security starts by reviewing the threats to your Windows PC: what hackers know about your computer and the Internet, and how they can use that knowledge to attack you. Then, step by step, you'll plan and implement today's most powerful defenses. Discover how to:

  • Stop sharing resources you don't want to expose to the world
  • Choose and implement the right "personal firewall"
  • Protect your e-commerce transactions
  • Avoid viruses, worms, Trojans, and hostile Web pages
  • Protect your privacy and anonymity on the Web
  • Cope with today's new wireless hacking attacks
  • Respond and recover if you've already been hacked
  • Make the most of Windows XP's new computer security features

Windows Internet Security makes security comprehensible, practical-even easy! At home or at work, it's the one indispensable security book for every Windows user and administrator.
