According to a study by America Online, 89% of the computers with
broadband connections are not safely configured.  91% of the computers had
what AOL categorized as spyware installed.  In reality, the connection
method isn't the determining factor.

Although firewalls and anti-virus helps, it doesn't prevent a determined
user from infecting his own system.  Honeypots and passive detection
systems aren't picking up the whole story.  The user is an important
part of evaluating the security equation.

so where is the authoritative web site 

   <http://make-your-stinkin-windoze-system-safe.clue>

to which we can point all our friends (and use to lock down
our kids' machines/sites)?
