Computers don’t have a warm and fuzzy feel. It’s not like they are a treasure chest or sentimental hatbox full of mementos tied up in ribbons? Or are they? When computers hold not only your needed documents but also favorite documents, photographs and music, owners have good reason to hold their computers close to their hearts. Viruses, worms and Trojans threatened to damage or destroy not only your life’s work but also your life’s treasures.
There’s not just the precious to consider of course. The seemingly mundane, but personal information on your computer puts you at risk for the heartbreak of identity theft.

For those of you who want to protect the confidential as well as the sentimental, you may want to consider a security suite that offers comprehensive coverage in a single protection product, which makes suites a money saver all around.
However, memory is a consideration with security suites. If your PC has less than 1 gigabyte of memory, a security suite may slow down your computer.
CA offers a security suite CA Security Suite Plus for $69.99 that covers three computers and includes anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-phishing to further protect you from the risks of identity theft.
Features of the CA Security Suite Plus:
* Personal Firewall
* Parental Controls

Taking an inventory of what you have in your PC is important. Are there not only necessary but personally important documents, photos or music stored on your PC? How much time do you spend on the computer? How often do you type in important personal information? Being aware of how you use your computer, whether it is a holder of hobbies, a personal treasure trove or survival pack can help you decide what types of protection you need. Think carefully about what you do and have on your computer because you can be sure that keyloggers, phishers and those who want to make you a victim of identity theft will know if you are not protecting yourself and your treasures.
