I recently purchased a new external hard drive and I set about transferring files from my old XP computer to my new hard drive that I then connected to my Sony Vaio laptop. Most files on the new hard drive are accessible on my Vista laptop, but a large group (100 Gig) of video editing folders and files are not accessible. I get these messages: "You don't currently have permission to access...

Do I need a router for protection? by Bob
My questions: Do I need a router for protection? Will it significantly improve my protection? When does "The Law of Diminishing Returns" apply if it would help just a little? I have been reading about security. One site said a router makes my computer "invisible" on the internet. And another said "In very basic terms, a router will automatically reject unsolicited inbound communications...

How much of a chance am I infected? by Bob
I reinstalled Vista. I thought I disconnected my network wire from my cable modem before I started the reinstall. The first thing I did when I could get Vista running was setup a standard user account and finished the reinstall and updates in that and not in admin account. I downloaded SP1 & SP2 files before reinstall so I did not have to download it during reinstall but just double...
