Anti-Virus:

Firewalls help protect your computer from hackers and malware such as worms.  As hackers and virus creators become more and more creative, firewalls become more and more essential.   Firewalls, however, can interfere with browsing and other Internet-related applications.  The following links cover how to enable/disable and configure these firewalls.  To access a tutorial, pick your firewall and click its corresponding link.

 

Anti-virus programs scan not only your computer but also your e-mail for viruses.  To do this, many of the anti-virus programs modify your incoming mail server settings and your username.  From time to time, things go wrong and you're unable to receive e-mail.  You must re-configure the settings manually so your e-mail client works harmoniously with your anti-virus program.  The following links cover how to disable your antivirus client to help troubleshoot the problem.  To access a tutorial, pick your anti-virus program and click its corresponding link.
