Five small and essential apps to armor your PC

By Lincoln Spector

Protecting yourself from the criminals of the Internet shouldn't cost you a fortune. In fact, it doesn't have to cost you anything.

Firewalls and antivirus programs can't do all the work of safe computing small, targeted utility apps that encrypt your files, keep your passwords safe, and clean up your PC add to your protection.

I have five of these small security apps that I wouldn't want to do without. Chances are you could use them, too; if not now, then someday.

What's even better they're free.

Except for the last item, pretty good information. He's a bit behind the times as far as online forums. Most have left Trend Micro's HJT behind.

What do you do with that report? Nonexpert PC users should post it to one of the many online forums frequented by knowledgeable good Samaritans who, hopefully, can help you with your problem.
