the antivius program starts
If you need help installing Norton
Antivirus 2000 or getting it to operate properly -- they
have a new policy. It used to be customers had to pay a long
distance phone bill to wait up to 40 minutes for help, even if
it was because of flaws in the Norton installation program. Their
800 number used to be reserved for people who had paid for "PriorityCare"
Nowadays, you can call 800-927-3991 for free help. I suggest
manually running your Live Update and then manually setting Norton
to scan all files on your computer just to make sure those L0pht
groupies and other bad actors, no matter how much venture capital
they have to use against you, can't trash your computer.
If your problem with computer criminals isn't solved by an
antivirus program, you can get more help at The
PC-Help site, or http://www.safersurfer.com,
Back section and at A. Cole's free Computer
If you want more than just to save yourself from the bad guys,
if you want to fight back and tease and torment them -- legally
-- you can read the chapter on War
Tools, posted online from The
Happy Hacker book. Or, if you are really, truly serious about
becoming a talented white hat cyber warrior, get both of Carolyn
Meinels books on hacking. Her just-released Überhacker!
-- How to Break into Computers, with CD-ROM, will take you
all the way to the top.
