One of the biggest threats on the Internet is Ransom-ware. The other danger for your computer is not having a backup. Here is an easy way to automate the process of having a backup:
I use Carbonite as my backup service. For $59/year, unlimited storage on their server – whenever my computer is idle, it begins backing up any new or changed files and it now has a 60 day history of files that I can restore from. Their tech support is based in Boston, MA and they are very nice to work with.
