Things that you can do online to waste time.
- Try the new version of microsoft windows update. Go to http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com and click the I agree thing and then you’ll be able to play with the new windows update system. It’s prettier.
- Scan your computer for viruses at Trend Micro’s web site. Go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com and you’ll automatically download the latest virus definitions and scanner and scan your computer for free. I find that this scanner is immune to most of those viruses that force other virus scanners to close.
- Get Zone Labs’ Zone Alarm and see what’s really coming at you online. Go to http://www.zonelabs.com to download and install the free Zone Alarm. Once running, this program will watch your internet traffic and let in what you tell it is good and keep out what you tell it is bad. It’s amazing how many viruses people are hunting for on my machine.
