V1 of the Protect Your PC site launched in August 2003 as a response to the Blaster virus and has since helped protect millions of customers around the world. The new version of the site continues the mission and provides novice users the basic guidance they need to protect their computers online, with easy language that they can understand. Tell all your friends and family and get them of your backs (a bit). With this new and improved version you get:
Automatic OS and SP2 detection and personalization so you are automatically taken to the guidance specific to your computer.
Anti-spyware guidance and tools—including Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware (Beta).
Guidance for users of XP Service Pack 2—including how to use the Windows Security Center.
Integration with new Microsoft Update service.
