Online security: Making it simple

Products aim to better serve computer users befuddled by ever-changing threats. Gary Stevens has lots of computers in his house, but one machine proved problematic until recently.

The Windows based PC, set aside for his two sons, would repeatedly become crippled by viruses and other online infestations even though commercial security software was installed on it. Stevens would have to wipe its hard drive and reinstall its operating system at regular intervals.

For Stevens, this was an epiphany.

"I was paying money quarterly for software that was supposed to protect" the computer, he recalled. "It occurred to me that there had to be a better way." St. Paul Pioneer Press | 06/22/2006 | Online security: Making it simple
