Hi Ya'all :tazz:

I'm looking into getting DSL, but have been scared into not getting DSL due to having such an older computer. Its a 1997 HP

But is there programs/downloads I can get to keep me safe from hackers with my computer? I'm now in a town that carries DSL and would really love to get away from Dial Up.

Thanks :)

Anti spyware

1, 6 and 7 work with 98SE

Only get one firewall and one anti virus

Zone Alarm Free with AVG Free is a popular choice

Other than that DSL should run OK

Hi Stacey:

I have an HP 98SE and it have used DSL for years. Keith gave you some great sites to keep you clean.

Thanks Keith and Wifey! This is just GREAT!!! Going to get set up for DSL now :) OMG, cant wait.
I would love to have Cable Internet, but that cost 60.00+ A bit out of my league.



Thanks again and have a wonderful day to the both of you

Stay well

:)
