Re: Security Consideration
The best security can be achieved by using a Cable/DSL Router even if you
have only one computer.
The Router's NAT Firewall provides very high security against Hacking your

In addition using Vista native Firewall, Windows Defender, and adding an
Antivirus application to each computer is as secured as you can be.
