I have a USB stick which I carry along with a to-do checklist when I install new, update, troubleshoot, or tuneup computers. I will show my favorite web browsers and web browser settings as well as browser add-ons and extensions. I will discuss antiviruses. I will explain what a firewall is and why I use one. 

I use multiple email addresses for certain types of emails such as friends, associates, businesses, clubs, and mailing lists. I also use multiple email providers and will explain why. I use VPNs and will explain how to choose one. I update my Windows, web browsers, drivers, and utilities daily to stay safe. I will explain private or incognito mode.
