PC Fear Factor: The Ultimate PC Disaster Prevention Guide
Safe Computing in the Digital World... One-of-a-kind book that helps the reader prepare for PC Armageddon-whether it is caused by a mechanical failure, hacker, thief or by his own hand. Written for home users and consumers who aren't PC experts or security experts, or don't care to be either of the above. An uncompromising work that's guaranteed to make the reader's skin crawl if she hasn't taken steps to safeguard her PC. What would you do if the hard drive containing a year's worth of financial data and your wedding photos suddenly stops working? What would you do if Internet hackers run off with your credit card numbers and rack up several thousand dollars in 1-900 calls? Most people never even remotely consider the possibility of a computer disaster, let alone the ensuing weeping and gnashing of teeth to follow. They take it for granted that their computer will always work, like the fifteen-year-old fluorescent light bulb in their kitchen. Of course, it doesn't work that way. Inevitably, disaster strikes-and when it does, they can kiss their irreplaceable digital photos, MP3s, master's thesis and steamy love letters good-bye. PC Fear Factor: The Ultimate PC Disaster Prevention Guide is the first line of defense in keeping safe from these all-too-real situations. Alan Luber is a project manager with ADL Consulting, Inc. and provides program management services and supply chain consulting to companies implementing complex, cross-functional, and multi-million dollar Enterprise Resource Planning / Supply Chain information technology solutions. He is the author of Solving Business Problems With MRP II (Butterworth-Heinemann, 1995).
