I am a senior who has been using a computer for years just to scan the news and answer emails. Since I would like to accomplish more onmy computer, I read this book.

Understanding computer security was very valuable for me such as making sure I am getting Windows updates, using defender correctly and running scans. I also needed to know more about phishing scams and being more careful in opening my emails and this book did a good job of giving me the basic information I needed.

I would have liked more information about the different security systems, malware detectors etc....
