Protecting Your Computer: Internet Security & Backups

This month's meeting will be all about protecting your computer. First off, group president, Bert Boyd, will do a short presentation on Norton Internet Security 2009 by Symantec. Symantec used to be the gold standard, but then fell into disfavor by computer users. The 2009 version has been rewritten from scratch and has gotten excellent reviews for it's speed, small size and it's ability to stay out of way until needed.
Then we will focus on backing up your data in a Webinar, a remote presentation by our old friend Gene Barlow on Backing Up Your Hard Drive using Acronis True Image.

Gene has been a presenter in the user group community for 25 years. Now, thanks to online innovative communications, he will be presenting a live Webinar. The Webinar will provide you with an active view of Gene's presentation, allowing you to see and hear his slide presentation, see his software products demonstrated live and ask questions and receive live answers at the meeting.

Gene's topic is "Backing Up Your Hard Drive" using Acronis True Image Home. Make sure you are adequately protected and can recover from any unforeseen events such as viruses, unstable software downloads, and hard drive failures by having a well thought-out backup plan. Having a good backup system is essential in order to put your system back together again in a few minutes, not days or weeks. This is an important topic that every PC User should implement on their computer.

After the presentation, you will be able to purchase your own copy of True Image Home at a special price.
