Recommended Computer Protection

Why spend hundreds of dollars each year on a security subscription when you can get the same or better protection for free?

We recommend that every computer user have at least the following protection: a PERSONAL FIREWALL, some sort of resident ANTI-VIRUS PROTECTION, and a resident and/or manual scan ANTI-SPYWARE, ANTI-ADWARE, and ANTI-MALWARE program.

Please be aware that the following programs are generally free for personal, non-commercial use. Be sure to read the terms & conditions in the licensing agreement for each to ensure that you are using the correct, legal version of each. If you have more advanced or commercial needs, please contact JCB Computer Services to discuss your security needs.

Personal Firewall

A personal firewall protects your internet connection in both inbound and outbound directions.  This helps keep unwanted programs from communicating with the internet, and can help to stop hidden program installations from the internet. Some routers provide rudimentary hardware firewall protection, but it is always recommended to also protect your computer with a personal firewall.
