    In use PayPal whenever I can when ordering online. I have a separate debit card I use for all online purchases (my credit union protects debit cards just like credit cards; the difference is I can easily control how much can be taken out by limiting the balance), including through PayPal, so, if something went pear shaped, my losses would be minimized. I won't buy from dodgy sites, even if using PayPal, but I'm just as safe buying from reputable vendors online as I am from local vendors in person; actually more so since I don't use the internet only card when buying locally and the card I use has more money in it.

    Thanks for a most illustrative and informative reply, I will keep away from the wire-less option and investigate Kaspersky
    Please do anjou and if you are interested I can always help out with the config. Despite what has been said by anyone including myself it remains and always will on how one uses the net as no security system is totally safe and I should add that the safe money I mentioned in the Kaspersky suite is probably no exception but in my mind a whole lot safer than most other security softwares.

    Just this morning I read and posted that MSE is going pear shaped and that even Linux is becoming increasingly more vulnerable plus the worries that there is an increase in the incidence of hardware / firmware being infected so whatever way you look at it you just need to be careful and if you have to bank on line like some of us in rural areas need to do keep it to a minimum. :)
