Default Re: How to safe My Computer From Hankers?

You are not giving us any information about your computer and it's software configuration with which to determine how safe it is from hackers.

I can tell you this much, when you computer is off it is safe from hackers unless they get physical access to it.

I was going to say that (unplugged), but physical access is more of a danger than booting the computer from a Wake-on-LAN. Then again, I don't know anything about the OP's local network or his computer!

The OP is the new ethreat, he needs to be banned for spamming threads with useless post just to promote his sig links (I wouldn't touch those links either btw)
