Security Week

Watch out for "Microsoft Tuesday" this week when the Redmond, WA, giant releases twelve new patches - 10 for Windows and 2 for MS Office. No worries, they're just practicing for Vista when it will be all gooood. If you can't wait for that you can download Internet Explorer 7 Beta 3 which will be included in the new OS. I've been using it for several months and have had no major issues. I'm finally getting used to the tabbed browsing.

Computers are flying off shelves now and will continue to sell at a rapid pace over the next few weeks as kids go off to school. As always, make sure every system is running an antivirus program, spyware snuffer, firewall and more. Hey, this is your lucky week! The good folks at Zone Labs sent me several dozen copies of their Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite.

I'll be anti-creative and just give away a copy to every caller on my show this Saturday, August 12 (while supplies last). Tune in and ask for one.
