A Site to See

By John Wagley

In order to ensure that your PC is protected from malware, it helps to run a few tests. This site offers just that: a handful of free, relatively quick self-assessments. Options include testing the strength of your firewall and your protection against pop-ups. You can also measure your Internet speed and check whether your IP address is hidden or visible. If it is visible, a map appears showing your PC's approximate location. The site explains why you might want to mask your IP address.

A host of security tips, a help and support forum, and other features make Auditmypc this month's site to see.
