Does anyone know a good site I can copy / paste info and make a good fact sheet.

A PC with a new op sys got reinfected in two days.
Im going to reinstall the op sys again, but this is their last chance so I want to accompany it with some education.

Thanks,

That link has some good advice. but it reads as amateurish and a little dated or misinformed. I think whoever contributed it got their data from teen forums or something.

Generally, don't go to random sites, don't open email you don't know and NEVER click a link in email.

Hi,

Would recommend a document with Do's And Don'ts

Where a one liner will do then a lengthy article being frankly which no one will read.

The one liners can say

Do not install applications until verified by system administrator
Do no use USB drives in corporate systems
Do not misuse internet access by visiting inappropriate websites -- To avoid you can install Site Advisors for web that will rate and prompt the users for its contents even before users clicks the links
Do not open unknown email attachments, or spam others with electronic greeting cards, chain mails, jokes, hoax and junk mails

shorter the message, easier to grab the information

Regards
