How to Secure your DSl / Cable Internet Connection Against Malicious Attacks
Securing your Windows Xp computer is done by achieving two main tasks.
The first, is to prevent unauthorized users sitting at your computer and logging in through your keyboard.
The second, is to prevent access to your computer through your internet connection. Preventing unauthorized users is done by controlling your user accounts management.
This is done by creating one account beside the administrator account. This way, you end up with one administrator account for managing the whole system, and another user account for using all the time you are not managing your system.
Once you install Windows Xp operating systems, you create a user account beside the administrator account. This new account user ID and password is only known to you, the administrator. By doing this, you disallow anyone from using your computer by sitting at your keyboard.
The second task is to prevent unauthorized internet access from the outside world. Your computer internet connection is the main source of all kinds of attacks that will damage different programs installed on your computer.
Attacks from the Internet can be of different forms. Their effects can vary from slowing down you machine to producing annoying messages. Today with the high speed Internet access, you get bombarded with problems much more when you were using dial-up connection.
