This page has links & information to secure your PC. Take some time to update for your security!
Start by updating your PC. Just go to [Start]  [Settings--Control Panel]  & click on Windows Update.
 You may need to turn off your firewall, anti-virus, or what ever you have to update.
 

**Microsoft, Opera, Mozilla types, always has important updates & security patches.
It is important to keep up with the fixes. More over, now that I stopped using the Internet Explorer,
my PC became more stable with no crashes.

**If you have a firewall, you may want to check if you have the latest one, and that it is set up well.
There are some files that popped up on my PC that my firewall, stopped. You may want to setup your firewall
to block the files from getting a connection in or out of your PC.
 If you use the agnitum type firewall you should get the blockpost plug-in.
With that you can list IP addresses you want to block completely.

**Other than having blockpost for your Outpost firewall, you can use a Hosts file to block bad web sites.
Windows checks the Hosts file before it goes out anywhere on the internet. So it will block any
applications from connecting to the Internet that is on the Host list

 Your Host file can be found at:
Windows Vista = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 95/ME = C:\WINDOWS
Linux/Unix =  /etc/hosts
Apple = System Folder:Preferences and in the System Folder itself.

 If you run any Spy ware programs they might have there own Host file they put in there.
So in that case adding your own Host file will cause the Spy ware program to not work right.
You need to look at the list & see which one has the better list, like in "Spybot" their Host list is small
like 120 KB in size, where the "MVPS HOSTs File" is 691 KB. There is more info in the MVPS HOSTs file.
 

More information on securing your firewall can be found at:

More information on Host files can be found at:
http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm_*_http://www.hosts-file.net_*_http://hostsfile.mine.nu
 

**There are files you can put a block on, by your Firewall. There are files that my firewall said some one
tried to get in to, or my PC gave a warning about a access violation about the file.

 I blocked the file urlmonb.dll only to have my firewall tell me that someone tried to access the file.
So these blocks on files are worth doing!

 Just add a file to block & Just copy & paste the files names below, in the place where it is. Some files look like
they are not there but they might be there, relay! I have found some files that where there but
did not show up on any search!

 Other that blocking the files with your firewall you can set some files to "Read-only, Hidden & Archive".
As in: Kernel3B.dll, KERNEL32.DLL, KRNL386 & other files you want. If it messes with your system, take
off the Read-only.

**For your programs like your browsers etc, I would re-name the start file, like "Seamonkey.exe" named to
"GJEWH.exe", then make the shortcut to your desktop & re-name it something like "SM browser" so you know
what it is. This is a good thing to do just in case.
 I would also set the program file to "Hidden & Archive" & mostly to "Read-only". All your flash files too!
you will need to un-check "Read-only" to some files to make the program run good in your browser files.
 Before you "Hidden & Archive" you could hit the files with_UPX_to compress the files, this might help.
I did this to my Flash, Java & Browser files. If you get on Youtube etc, a lot you will need to do this!

 It would be also best to re-install windows under a new name. As in being "C:\WINDOWS" it would now be called
"C:\JWQLZP".

 Also for me I deleted ".NET" & Microsoft java. I personally do not like the way it controls your PC. This is an whole other story but, I do not like how the windows platform controls things. As in if you have a pirated form of windows, a pop up will
remind you have a pirated OS. There are ways around this, but the point is the leading to control your PC.
 I have heard of the ability of them to lock down your system. I can see this as a next step.

 Some pirated form of windows will still do an update, but only in the automatic update mode.
This is to secure the software, to protect other peoples PC's that may not have the updates, this is good
for the whole system.

  For me I like to use an old OS. You have to work on it to set it up. But all in all it is more secure than a new OS.
Depending what you have you can get around a "denial-of-service attack" just by restarting your shell you might have.
 

FILES TO BLOCK WITH YOUR FIREWALL & SET TO READ-ONLY, HIDDEN, ARCHIVE!
