    The best-kept secret in the fight against viruses and spyware is a company called HonorPC! They actually guarantee against identity theft! I have owned my HonorPC for over a year. I bought it for half the price of a Mac, and it doesn’t need any anti-virus software and it won’t allow you to get into trouble from any spyware out there, new or old! It also uses Windows XP, which is a plus for those of us that like to view things without being shackled by a Mac’s overly anxious parenting. You should check it out before they are bought out by a big computer company and banished from the face of the earth!

    Their web site is and they have their phone number right on the home page. You can actually talk to an English-speaking native!
