I've been a longtime subscriber to PC magazine. Over the years, the magazine has given me a lot of helpful tips. Of course, this was back in the day when I only ran windows. Now that I run Linux, I've found that most of the Windows information provided by PC magazine is irrelevant.
As an example, PC Magazine is running an online article called, Nine ways to Wipe Out Spyware. You can view this article at: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2255857,00.asp
These articles often catch my attention. Because, although they are quite helpful to folks struggling with Windows problems, the real solution is quite simple. Get Linux. Linux is immune to Windows viruses, Trojans, and spyware. with Linux, you won't need to purchase a third party software program to constantly scan your system and remove these nasty annoyances.
Linux is stable, secure, and wonderfully easy to use. The software is free and the license allows you to share it with others. And best of all, you won't need to spend hundreds of dollars in spyware scanners, anti-virus programs and subscriptions.
Get secure without breaking the bank. Get Linux.
