Just got a new PC, AMD K6 2.6, win XP.

My old one was win98.

Before i connect my broadband should i do anything to upgrade XP, to stop all those nasties getting on board.

I have AVG, and i think telefonicas BB has a firewall.

Thanks in advance John in sunny Spain..

Cover it with mosqito cream to stop bites and surround it with cucaracha powder to stop trhem from nesting in the tower. Lol TR

To download the upgrades you will have to go on the net, so the first time you go on, go to m/soft and upgrade.

A useful load of otherstuff to add to to the pc. click here for a little list of anti malware programs.

Thanks guys for your help, much appreciated.

Its a big jump from K6 400 win 98 to what i have now.

TR. my misses is the one who gets the mossy bites,;-)

Funny but we have never had cucaracha problems, especially in the old tower, anyway the fan would blow all the powder out.....lol

PS spellcheck says i should change cucaracha to cockroach.... nah it dont sound as good !

Regards john.....wheres that cold cruzcampo ???¿¿¿
