Jeffs Reviews

I review computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, kitchen gadgets and tools. Almost all I know about computers comes from hands on learning on the internet on my own, no classes or college in computers. I have built a few computers on my own and do all the work for all the reviews I write, contacting the companies myself and asking for things I am interested in purchasing myself. I work hard to bring you my opinions of the things I review and hope you enjoy my writing.

General PC help

A friend of mine has been having problems with their computer and I will be doing more work on it over the upcoming Christmas break. I found a junk load of spyware and adware stuff on the computer when I had it at home and ran AdAware, SpyBot and a few other programs.

I cannot stress enough the importance of a firewall program, spyware and adware blockers and a general security suite. I use Trend Micro's Internet Security Suite 2007 but have also used AVG antivirus that is free. Just google and you will find some very good ones. I would also suggest going to and the section they have on programs for internet security to find free and trial versions before you spend your hard earned money on one.

If your interested I have some good articles at my CP Page at Associated Content with some more information about spyware, adware and viruses.
