Security tips for home computer users

Hello there!  I'm Matt Chadwick at the business desk.  So many home computer users are constantly having to look over their shoulder when it comes to the matter of security for their computers.  In general, obtaining adequate security for home computers is an extremely expensive matter and often times home computer users have to depend on the reliability of technicians who often times are not what they say they are.  It is a very expensive proposition for home computer users to pay a lot of money to technicians who more often than not do not deliver what they say they can.  In addition, many home computer users either simply do not have the time to do their research or they do not know how to do their research.
Let us help you.  Let us bring you the latest tidbits and headlines so that you do not have to spend precious time searching for it.  This week we have a selection of tidbits and headlines from around the world and we hope that you read them and store them somewhere safe in case you should need them in the future. 
At the business desk, I'm matt Chadwick wishing you a very Happy Easter.
