Since a lot of peeps are always asking about pop ups, web
space, mail programs, spam blockers and stuff, Mr Lizard has gathered a
list of useful utilities and resources for your delectation. I can vouch for most of
them, but as I don't want my short lizard life to be hell, here's the
disclaimer: use these at your own peril and please don't give me grief if
you get any problems. I can only say that there are some useful programs
Anti-virus and Spyware
** NOTE ** Please
remember never to open e-mail attachments that may contain potentially
dodgy executables (.exe .scr .pif .bat etc.) unless you're absolutely sure
of their source. The benefits of a good and (particularly important),
regularly updated, virus scanner combined with good firewall/intrusion
detection software cannot be overstated. Finally, remember that if you do
receive a virus, that these will more often than not spoof the names of
innocent parties in their "from address" and so do not normally indicate
the actual source of the virus.
