Entry written by Secunia.

The article ’10 commandments of Windows security’ by Daniel Dern discusses the ongoing security issues faced by PC users even though Windows 7 is available. Whilst Windows 7 may have brought about a greater sense of security amongst users compared to previous versions of the Microsoft operating system, it is a dangerous game to be too complacent about PC security and it is certainly too early to sit back and relax.

Dern therefore presents his top 10 list of recommendations mainly comprising free tools that users can use to help boost their security on Windows notebooks and PCs. These tips range from starting with new hardware to setting new passwords and adding/activating anti-theft tools.

The Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) is highlighted in the article by Ed Bott, a Windows expert and ZDNet blogger under ‘2nd commandment: Use current OS versions and automatically get OS and application updates’. Bott says “Third-party software is usually the vector that security intrusions come through, not the operating system…Flash, Adobe Reader and Java are three of the biggest targets.” He therefore recommends using a tool such as the Secunia PSI to “automate update checking for all the applications on your computer.”
