Default How To Make My Computer More Secure

SOMEONE TELL ME IF THIS IS WRONG


ADSL EMBARQ 660 DSL BOX WITH A NETGEAR FVS114 FIREWALL?

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO PROTECT THIS COMPUTER? IS THIS A GOOD FIREWALL AND WHAT KIND OF OPTIONS UNDER THE ADMIN TAB WOULD MAKE IT STRONGER?

DO I HAVE TO RUN JAVA? I HEAR IT IS VERY DANGEROUS AND WANT TO MAKE SURE THIS IS SECURE.

THANKS

Turn off Caps lock first.

You can install an antivirus scanner and antispyware monitor. There are much worse things than hackers, like viruses.
