Security tips for home computer users

Hey there!  I'm Alix Shadonnay at the business desk.  Today I would like to shine the spotlight on security for your home computer.  With more and more hackers and cyber pirates coming out of the woodwork to cause havoc for us all, we believe that it is very important for you to be aware of them and how to keep yourselves and your computers safe from them and their schemes and viruses.
We also know how hard it is for you to keep up with the latest viruses, bugs, hackers, and much more.  So, we are doing our part to help you.  Please review this week's collection of security tips for home computer users and while you are reading them, there's one idea that I would like to leave with you.  Why not think about setting up a business that would offer home computer security services?  Just a thought.
I'm Alix shadonnay at the business desk wishing you a great day.
