What an absolutely fabulous giveaway! I love all things techy!

Norton is my favorite computer protector! I don't surf the internet without it.

As for Staples, it really has nothing to do with computer security, but I love their huge tubs of multi-colored paperclips and their 3X3 LINED Post-Its!!!


By Blogger Alesha, at 3/25/2008 4:06 PM  

STaples has great organizing stuff. I think maybe we need a safe for personal documents, now that I saw their safes.

I love Norton's phishing protection. It makes it easy to tell what is real and what is fake. As for Staples, I am obsessed with pens, so that is a dangerous store for me.

By Blogger ezmerelda, at 3/26/2008 6:36 AM  

I worry about internet security because all my banking information is on my computer. I love Staples for their notebooks and pens, I buy all of my school supplies there.

By Blogger sweetsue, at 3/26/2008 6:43 AM  

I live for my PC - couldn't live without it. Because I use it so much for personal as well as business needs, feeling that my information is secure is a necessity. I would love to win this Norton package for my PC. As far as Staples, I love everything in their stores. I shop there for my kids school needs, as well as personal and business products...everything from rubberbands to ink cartridges to PC software.

By Blogger mkboldin, at 3/26/2008 6:55 AM  

I use my Norton and I check all my families e-mails before they open them to amke sure they're not opening viruses. we seem to get a lot of spam :(
Staples has lots of great stuff that I've bought: phones, computer stuff, office needs and I like their copy center :)

I never used to worry about it, but then recently my e-mail address was hijacked by someone in a foreign country (which I would never dream could happen) and they sent out thousands of e-mails in my name. If that can happen, ANYTHING can. Internet security is PARAMOUNT!!

Thanks so much for this giveaway. Internet is so important!!! I love Norton and currently use it. Staples is a favorite store of ours. I love that they have great choices of office supply items at a reasonable price. Thanks again.

By Blogger peg42, at 3/26/2008 8:13 AM  

Internet security is very important. My husband is in the military, and often goes on deployments. The correspondence we carry on, while not 'classified', still could pose a risk of sorts, so in my case, it is very important to have the best interenet security possible on our home computers. Staples is where I do a bulk of my purchases of things like printer ink, paper, and other incidentals for using my computer.

Internet security is very important to me. I need to make sure all my files are safe and secure, as they are very vital. My favorite things from Staples are any computer items.

Internet security should be taken seriously. A planned agenda for updating your protective software and other security features should be in place whether it is a home computer or at work. I love staples for the variety of items such as computer programs to basic office supplies. Thanks

By Blogger ksbald2, at 3/26/2008 9:05 AM  

Norton is a great software tool. That, along with other computer protection software, including the human factor, (watching what you click on or open), is important. I live in a small town and don't have a Staples. Been years since I've been to one.

Norton is my favorite internet securiy software, never run my computer without it running. My data files are precious to me so I want to protect them.

Staples has a wide variety of items that I love.....especially their organizing items.

What a great contest!

By Blogger Unknown, at 3/26/2008 10:36 AM  

Oh my, Staples has 16 GB flash drives! At the moment we have only one 1 GB fd so..

Talking about internet safety.. it's crazy how careful you have to be these days. So many phishing e-mails and hoaxes circulating around the net that it makes me miss good old days..

By Blogger JOYVEN, at 3/26/2008 11:05 AM  

Love the prize. Internet safety is only as safe as we make it.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3/26/2008 12:22 PM  

Internet safety is probably my #1 concern, for me, my work and my parents. My mom and dad still use a PC, and didn't quite understand the severity of hackers until someone transferred $3,000 from their checking account, via Paypal, into another paypal account in another country.

It is 6 months later, and although Paypal and their bank covered their loss, they are still dealing with the situation.

I have showed them several websites that help walk them through ways to keep themselves safe.

My job is predominitely online, and my co-workers get viruses about 1x a month. It is a huge deal for us, and takes many days to clean our computers off, and we have lost a ton of work.

Keep your virus protection up to date, don't open any files from people you don't know, and never ever enter your password via an email. Just go straight to the website first!!!

By Blogger agordon10, at 3/26/2008 1:45 PM  

I feel vunerable without internet safety and feel that anyone can just reach in my computer and steal private information. My favorite Staple items are computer paper and office supplies like pens.

By Blogger mar, at 3/26/2008 2:12 PM  

Staples has ALL my favorite goodies! I love the computer accessories!
I worry a lot about internet security. You just have to be careful. I rotate my passwords, only use security sites for purchases, and I keep my virus scan updated.

By Blogger bosslady2898, at 3/26/2008 2:39 PM  

Internet safety is always a concern for me. Identity theft is everywhere. I've even stopped buying online so frequently. My fav product at Staples would have to be their fabric "paper". It is so easy to use in my HP deskjet printer. I hope I win, I hope I win, I hope I win....

It's very important to keep your info to yourself, and to make sure you have all of your files protected. I use my flash all the time! Those things are great!


By Blogger Sky, at 3/26/2008 4:27 PM  

i think that iternet safety is important. i know that one has to at least try to keep others from seeing their personal info. one does the best that they can. They thing i like about staples is that when you tell them that they price of something on their website is lower they look it up and give you the lower price. I got this on a printer from them. they were really nice about it. They have my business.


By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3/26/2008 4:41 PM  

With proper anti-viral and firewalls installed, the internet can be a safe place for adults and supervised children to play. No supervision or no protective software and it can be a nasty place

By Blogger Unknown, at 3/26/2008 4:55 PM  

Internet saftey is scarey- We can do all we can but kid just seem to know how to get around locks and blocks- going to someone elses house who doesn't have any.
I love all things from Staples- Love their selection of school supplies and papers!

i use zonealarm and avg free edition, but i'm never certain it's enough

By Blogger chromiumman, at 3/26/2008 5:07 PM  

internet security is important. I had let my Norton anti-virus expire and ended up with a virus which prevented IE from working. Even when we updated/upgraded anti-virus, it didn't help. System had to be restored with a destructive restore.

So make sure your anti-virus is updated and your firewall is active. If you don't protect your files and computer, who will!

My favorite Staples items are their staplers! At the grand opening in Cary, NC, they gave us a free one. So little effort required to staple papers. I made everyone at work try it and they were all impressed! One woman threatened to steal it, LOL!

I use Norton for security, I think it is the best. I do need to think more about backing up to really protect me from an attack via the internet. I like Staples, it is the place I bought my shredder.

By Blogger sdadolf, at 3/26/2008 6:41 PM  

I would love to win the Norton security package. I have so many files (but mostly pictures) that need backing up so badly! My favorite things at Staples would be the colored papers and the comfortable office chairs.

Internet security is all so important to protect especially my important documents and Norton is a great and comprehensive software.

As for Staples, I like their Mid-Back Leather Manager's Chair.

Honestly.. I really don't think about it.. maybe its a bit of cockyness but I used to work in computer security and I know all the awful things that can happen.. so you'd think Id be more concerned than ever?

I love the great selection of office furniture at Staples, actually. I'm not looking to buy any, but I have a chair from there that a boss got me several years ago and still love it. Great stuff!

As for internet safety and protecting my files, I think it is important that we take steps necessary to prevent different problems such as identity theft. I think a lot of people are careless sometimes, so products like this are really helpful for those of us that might need a little help.

I love Staples. I especially like the cute pens and other supplies they have for $50. I also think their ink cartridge recycling program is great.

By Blogger carissaad, at 3/27/2008 8:56 AM

In all my years on the net, I've found that Norton is the absolute best!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3/29/2008 10:49 AM  

I'm all about internet safety. I just wish it would become easier to keep up with it. My computer has crashed three times in the past couple of years due to viruses and that's having Norton anti virus. UGH!!!

Norton is good.

I like to shop at Staples for most of my computer programss.

I own a desktop and my daughter and grandson have laptops. We always use Norton Internet Security. I do everything on line. I shop and bank online as I have arthritis and Fibromyalgia and don't go out to shop very often. The internet makes life easier and with the Norton Internet security I feel safe.

This is perfect for me because I just bought a new HP Pavillion DV900T laptop!

I can use both the docking station and an antivirus software for my new laptop! Norton is my first choice too!

By Blogger Unknown, at 3/29/2008 10:14 PM  

I think internet security is very important with all the identity theft going on today. After all we use our computers to do banking and shopping, so we need to be protected.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3/30/2008 11:27 AM  

Norton antivirus and security is protecting my back. It's very important to have online safety measures in tact. To many people come prey to identity theft and viruses. This is such a great giveaway by Staples. Staples has so many wonderful things in their stores. My favorite thing to buy is their memory cards for my camera. They also have wonderful computer furniture for your home and office. Thanks to Staples and mod*mom for this giveaway.

I was hacked once by a UK person and it scared me to death. They took all my email away and were gonna use my email address to send out scams. With help with my ISP they walked me though it to reset my email. Whew.I still have really no good virus catcher yet but I keep a eye out all the time. I really don't need noone stealing my photos or anything on my PC nomore. What I like at Staples is their Ink for my printer.

Internet security should be a concern even if you have plenty of security. It's not something we should get complacent about. Staples is where I always get my printer ink for all of our printers. Also the free shipping helps.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3/31/2008 8:29 AM  

I use Computer Associates protection and really like it. It isn't as bulky (resource wise) as Norton. Very good.

What do I like at staples? Pens ... nice fine tip black ones for illustrations.

I try and keep up to date with internet security but there is always a new virus lurking out there somewhere. Norton makes great security products. I also love Staples and buy all of my home office supplies there. They have great prices on everyday items like paper for the printer, ink, etc. The employees at my local Staples store are always friendly as well as helpful.
Thank you for the nice giveaway.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3/31/2008 10:26 PM be honest identity theft is scary. But it doesn't limit what we do. We're very careful about what sites we go on and who we give information to. We are not as good about protecting our files and we should be because my husband lost his entire computer including important files.

I really like their storage and organizing solutions from staples!

I always worry about internet safety and wonder if someone is stealing my information. But with good security in place I worry less.
I love all the PC accessories I can get at Staples plus all the organizing materials I need to keep my filing cabinet in order.

By Blogger Betty C, at 4/01/2008 12:31 AM  

Internet safety? Probably not what you'd think in my situation. I have two teen girls and I don't supervise their computer time, but they get in HUGE trouble if their computer gets virused. They know what NOT to click on and that they should be scanning.

Protecting files? My computer has a cd/dvd burner. If it's that important I'll make a backup and file it. I'm considering online storage, though.

And Staples? Definitely neon paper and large qualities of various envelopes for a continuing project. In addition, they're much more convenient and much less expensive than Kinko's.

Internet safety is a vital yet often overlooked aspect of computer use. Giving out personal information online carelessly can lead to a crisis. People don't give very much thought, either, to what might happen if their hard drive were to get wiped out. Backing up files is extremely important! External hard drives are a good way to back up data. I'm grateful that Staples is raising awareness of internet safety! Staples has always been great for back-to-school supplies. I get my planners and notebooks there every year.
