It is not always possible to run a Linux live CD on a public computer. If you are stuck using a public computer that is running Windows there are some things that you can do to make it more secure. These are steps that you should also take if you run Windows on your own computer. Some of these steps will also expose some of the trojans, spyware, and viruses that may be lurking on the computer.
The following pages will describe the steps on how to make a Windows computer more secure. Ideally these steps should be done immediately after a fresh install of Windows. If you do them after Windows has become infected with trojans, they may not get all the bad stuff out of the computer.
