Hi jzrith, welcome to geekstogo.

Do you have a firewall installed. That would be the first line of defense.

Here are 2 free ones available for personal use:It is also important to have a good antivirus (these are also free for personal use):.

If you don't already have one of each, please install one.

Also, where is he making the threat to hack you? If he's a member of another forum you visit, you should let an administrator know about this so that they can ban his account. If it is on an IRC network, you should go to the networks help channel and talk to an IRCop.

-Ryan

btw, what part of CT? I'm down in New Haven county.

Hi, I use "Kaspersky Antivirus 6.0" and some hackers try to get in my notebook on lan party's.
but they couldn't get in my pc. cause Kaspersky says when somebody is trying to get in your pc.

you can download a 30 day trial download @ http://www.kaspersky...apter=146481750

PM me if you like the program. and I'll tell you something else u need to know.

p.s. there is also another version of Kaspersky called: Kaspersky Anti Hacker.
never used it. but maybe u can try it out: http://www.kaspersky...apter=146482218



talk to ya later :whistling:
