Keep your Windows secure and up-to-date

Posted: April 23rd, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: howto | Tags: , , | No Comments »

I use three tools to keep my windows patched/updated:
– apup[1], faster than windows update;
– sumo[2], to have latest versions of your installed programs;
– secunia PSI[3], personal security inspector, to know if your programs are exosed to risk(s).

Your default installation should include an Antivirus, antispyware and a sandbox (sandboxie[4]) to play with untrusted applications.
