Some thoughts: First, while the threats from hackers are obviously very real, they’re not so intense you should forgo modern conveniences like online bill-pay. Use them: the upside is worth the risk.

Next, if you want to protect your computer and/or wonder what programs you can remove, a site like CNET can help. So can this one, for that matter. For example, here’s a search you can do. Put these words into Google:

site:moneytalksnews.com best free antivirus protection

or this search:

site:cnet.com best free antivirus protection

See what you come up with. Download a free program or programs, install them and relax. In short, while you should always be vigilant, don’t be so afraid you don’t harness the power of modern technology.
