For one reason or another, I get told to do this. OK, so I shut down my entire systray which, of course, includes spyware programs, my anti-virus protection and my Firewall. All I've left protecting me is my router.
The shutdown period is of course quite brief...maybe a couple of minutes.
Do any of you who read this worry about something bad happening to your computer? What do you do?
And what about the idea OF leaving anti-virus and a firewall running? Do you really have to shut them (or any programs) down for that matter? IS there a really valid reason for shutting anything down?
I suppose I could disconnect the modem but that seems extreme.
