How do you "secure" your home computer?
Just curious what everyone uses.
Here's what I do...
1) Zone alarm, lets me regulate which programs I allow to talk on the internet
2) Pop-up blocker
3) IE "Security" trusted sites. I set the default to no cookies, no scripts, etc... If I trust a site I add it to my "Trusted sites" zone and then allow cookies and scripts.
4) Only use "yahoo" addresses for registering for sites which I may expect spam from.
So far its worked pretty well, I only get like 1-2 spams/week, and have no weird icons dropped on my desktop or new favorites added.
