My personal web surfing habits are relatively complex and require a great deal of preparation, if you must know.... First, I've been growing Thai Dragon Chilis for several years. I also grow Cheyenne and Jalapeno as a change-of-pace. I grow my own Garlic. I grow my own garden fresh Tomatoes. I grow my own Cilantro (Coriander) With the above I make my own Salsa. I either bake my own chips or buy floor and white corn Tortilla chips lightly salted. Occasionally as an even greater change of pace I'll use some Grated Tillimook Extra Sharp Cheddar. Shredded London Broil roast Slivered ripe olives The above Salsa, Spread between two lightly roasted Tortillas and topped with Freshly grated Saputo Parmesan Brick Cheese and a dolip of Sour Cream What, you say? No guacamole? ...Nope. Not very often. Then I sit down in front of my 23"ViewSonic flat panel (I don't have broadcast TV) And enjoy the most recent episode of NCIS, Justified, or Lie to Me. Yes, I do keep a spare keyboard handy, in case of emergency, but have never had to use it.

Rather than the utility recommended by Lee above, which may be very good indeed, I like Sandboxie.
Or the FREE version of Sandboxie 3.46

And if you really want to lock down the management of your machine when connecting from public networks and/or networks that are not your own, consider MS SteadyState. (XP only, so far)

Note about Sandbox technology.
You may include your email client and your browser in the same Sandbox to improve security while conducting online activities.
However, keep in mind, that you will have given permissions to email client and browser to allow persistence of downloaded materials that "can" in some circumstances still infect your "real" machine.

That's why other security, and specifically MVPS Hosts File is a good idea to include in your security armor.



Oh mate,

You set youself up there as a 'sitter'.

I just couldn't help myself! :rofl:

Now that I can relate to Doug.

Zoe and I are reallty into that sort of thing. Even make our own pickle onions, jams, sauerkraut and everything else under the sun. We are bush people ( country people), have our own garden and as a plus I'm a qualified Chef De Party (Ex Hilton Head Chef and humble bottle washer). Maybe we could swap kitchen and garden info, some time?

My wife Zoe is obsessed with chillies and all the different varieties ( and oh boy, she is of Greek heritage from the island of Ithaca. big on Olives, Greek spirits and Chillies). She is not having a lot of success in the garden with Chiles (must be a secret to it).. Maybe we can swap some garden and kitchen knowledge sometime? :wavey:

Oh dear, sorry for all my post editing (most of my posts) Doug, My constant typos are annoying the hell out of me. I do hit the 'review' button. But even then I miss seeing some of my constant typos. Naturally I see them much later as I type early morning mostly when I have free time, but not a lot of light to see the keyboard properly. Sorry about that, but I thought I'd better say something as people must be 'wondering' about Lee when they see all the edits on my posts, I do eventually get them (mostly) right though in the end. I have a serious eyesight problem and I'm waiting in a long line for surgery (slowly going blind in the meantime).It's a pain and very frustrating. I'll have to give up my driver's license soon apparently, even though we live in a small town with little traffic and no traffic lights. No public transport either and Zoe only has a motorcycle license so she can't drive our 4x4. Oh joy, being a pillion on the back of her Moto Guzzi 1200cc Californian will be fun :-( OK, lets see if I can post this without a later edit (I've re-read this one 3 times) !
