Win-It Wednesday: Sony Vaio Netbook + F-Secure Internet Security!

by Tara Kuczykowski on September 29, 2010 · 2,278 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

With school back in session, more kids will be online than ever before doing homework, looking up information and playing educational games in addition to the hours spent on Facebook and emailing and instant messaging friends they would normally do. Keeping them safe as they browse is important, so you don't have to worry about what websites they're clicking through to and you can protect your computer as well from viruses and other internet threats.

F-Secure’s Internet Security 2011 features Browsing Protection to keep viruses, worms and spyware at bay, not allowing your children to click through to those sites. There are also advanced Parental Controls so that you can block sites with inappropriate content and keep your kids safe.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom winner will win a Sony Vaio 10" Netbook and 1-year of F-Secure’s Internet Security 2011!

To enter, visit the F-Secure website and then come back and tell me one thing you learned about staying safe online while you were there.

I learned that disabling System Restore before disinfection is recommended when running a F-Secure virus scan in order to prevent possible re-infection, as the feature may unintentionally save a backup copy of an infected file, which may then be reinstalled after disinfection is completed. Thank you for the great give-away.
