I am starting an internet business and have several questions.I presently operate Windows XP Home Edition and have the following softwares installed: Norton Internet Security 2004, Microsoft Anti-spyware 2005 (beta version), Spybot Search & destroy, A firewall and Norton anti-virus 2004. My questions are as follows:
(1).I have heard that a lot of people that had the Norton Internet 2004 edition and had a lot of trouble installing the 2005 version. What do I need to do to avoid these problems? Do I need to uninstall the 2004 version before installing the 2005 version? Is there a better internet software and if so how do they differ? If I decide to install a different version
what do I need to do that maybe the manual may not tell me?
(2).As mentioned before, I have Spybot Search & Detroy. When I do a scan Spybot indicates it is preferable to let them destroy anything in red but at the same time to look into what will be destroyed. Well, I cannot make heads or tails of what is listed.
How do I know for sure what is safe for Spybot to destroy?
(3).Which is the best easiest,automatic back-up/restore software you know of? If I could get an automated back-up system or one that I could back-up and restore quickly that would be great. I'm always
afraid something will happen and I won't be able to restore the data back on my own.
(4).Is there any other software I should be using to protect or maintain my compute that your aware of?
Well, that's an ear full. Hope you all can help. Thanks in advance.
