It is imperative that you have some form of internet security software on your computer, at the very minimum an antivirus package and a firewall. Viruses and hackers can cause no end of problems from, simple annoying popups, to stealing passwords, credit card details, and even delete valuable data.
Most, if not all internet service providers require that you have some level of internet security in place on you computers as part of their terms of service.
We recommend that you have a broadband internet connection as some updates are very large, and may time a long time to download on a dial up connection. For more information on broadband internet, please visit our broadband service page here.
