often a user needs to experience a severe data loss at least once before becoming a believer in backups.
Sad but true, completely true.

"The time" is basically when you have anything on the computer that would cause you inconvenience (beyond the inconvenience of a re-install) if you lost it forever.
eg photos
Address book
Saved passwords etc

Dont worry when i will get CENSORED  up by a virus i will do what u say for now like i said its all ok


Admin: Grrrr  >:(

CD's are fine. Provided you have some way of backing up what you don't want to lose. I find an external HD more convenient as an entire disk image can be transferred to it rather than having the data/photos etc piecemeal over several cd's, and maybe more reliable. Whatever you are happy with.
Windows 10,Windows Firewall,Firefox w/Adblock.

Except that I do not use Winpatol. Instead, I use What's Running to control start-up programs as well as viewing other information about these programs.

I've switched from WinPatrol to SysInternals Autoruns for managing startups.  It provides a little more information about the startup program than WinPatrol.  I still use WinPatrol for its other features though.
