Windows 8 antivirus and firewall
this is only 1 report , the first on I get on Google, may be it's partial to certain vendor, may be not, you have to Google and read few of them to have a better idea
The native Windows firewall and MSE were adequate protection for my Windows 7 installation so I will run the native firewall and Windows Defender on my Windows 8 installation.
Using Eclipse IDE works very well. This is secure since only chosen programs are allowed to run since no Java is installed. Browser plugins are default unavailable with this method and no applets run.
I have a software to control my train layout that need Java, but this PC is not connected to the web
What's the issue?
There are Java programs that can run offline but others require web connectivity.
If there is an external database involved, then internet/network connection is required.
But if all you need can be found locally on your machine, you should be able to run it just fine.
No issue, I just don't want JAVA in my PCs. Why install something that will bring more risk if I don't need it, Never ear of Java Exploit ?
