Thread: Anti Virus.

  1. #1
    hey guys, i only have AVG for my anti virus.

    and i have no firewall what so ever installed, is this bad ?, ive never actually been hacked or anything in my life so i never decided to get any firewall programs.

    although, i have screwed around with people threw sub seven, knowing how easy that program is to use freaks me out.

    you should look into what a firewall does:

    A firewall is like a personal bodyguard for the Internet. You talk to your firewall, and your firewall talks to the Internet for you. That way, you don't have to talk to the Internet directly, and any bad people on the Internet can't bug you. By their very nature, firewalls are paranoid and untrusting things. For the most part, a firewall won't let anyone talk to your computer unless you tell it to let them, and telling it to let them is tricky. Since most firewalls assume that if you talk to another computer then that computer is allowed to talk back to you
