Today I am posting to give you some quick tips regarding internet security.

  1. Network Activity Firewall

2. AdwCleaner

One of the most boring thing on Windows is the weakeness on malware and spyware software. Even having its own malware protection, most of the times it is ineffective. The tool I use for that is AdwCleaner, which really does a really nice job on cleaning spywares and malwares.
