cable lock, refer to the “Security” chapter in the Hardware and
Software Guide on the Documentation CD.
Protect the Notebook from Viruses
When you use the notebook for email, network, or Internet
access, you expose the notebook to computer viruses. Computer
viruses can disable your operating system, applications, or
utilities or cause them to function abnormally.
Antivirus software can detect most viruses, destroy them, and
in most cases, repair damage they have caused. To provide
protection against newly discovered viruses, antivirus software
must be updated.
Norton AntiVirus software is preinstalled on your notebook.

Protect Your System Files
System Restore is an operating system feature that enables you
to undo harmful changes to your notebook software by restoring
your software to an earlier time, called a restore point, when your
software was functioning optimally.
Restore points are restorable, benchmark “snapshots” of your
application, driver, and operating system files. The notebook sets
restore points at regular intervals and might set additional restore
points whenever you change your personal settings or add
software or hardware.
Manually setting additional restore points provides additional
protection for your system files and settings. It is recommended
that you manually set restore points
■
Before you add or extensively modify software or hardware.
■
Periodically, whenever the system is performing optimally.
Restoring to any restore point does not affect your data files. For
example, restoring your system software to an earlier time will
not affect documents or emails that you saved after that time. All
System Restore procedures are reversible.
Setting a Restore Point
To set a system restore point manually:
1. Select Start > Help and Support > System Restore.
2. Select Create a restore point, and then follow the
instructions on the screen.
Restoring to a Restore Point
To restore the notebook to a restore point:
1. Make sure the notebook is connected to a reliable AC outlet
through the AC adapter.
2. Select Start > Help and Support > System Restore.
3. Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then
follow the instructions on the screen.

Protect Your Privacy
When you use the notebook for email, network, or Internet
access, it is possible for unauthorized persons to obtain
information about your notebook and the data it contains.
(For Internet access instructions see the “Connect to the Internet”
section later in this chapter.)
To optimize the privacy protection features included with your
notebook, it is recommended that you
■ Keep your operating system updated. Many Windows
updates contain security enhancements. For information
about updating your operating system, refer to the printed
Help and Support Guide included with your notebook.
■ Use a firewall.
The Windows operating system firewall, Internet Connection
Firewall, is available on your notebook, but is disabled by
default. To learn more about this firewall or to enable or disable
this firewall:
1. Select Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet
Connections > Network Connections.
2. Select your Local Area Connection.
3. In the Local Area Connection Properties window, select
the Advanced tab. Then
❏ To learn more about Internet Connection Firewall,
select the Learn more about Internet Connection
Firewall link.
❏ To enable Internet Connection Firewall, select the check
box for Protect my computer and network by limiting
or preventing access to this computer from the
Internet.
❏ To disable Internet Connection Firewall, clear the
check box for Protect my computer and network by
limiting or preventing access to this computer from
the Internet.
4. Select OK.
3–4
Getting Started
Next Steps
Under some circumstances a firewall can block access to
Internet games, interfere with printer or file sharing on a network,
or block authorized email attachments. To temporarily solve the
problem, disable the firewall, perform the task, and then reenable
the firewall. To permanently resolve the problem, reconfigure the
firewall.
■
If you are using Internet Connection Firewall, select
Start > Help and Support for configuration information
or to contact a support specialist.
■
If you are using an optional firewall, refer to the firewall
documentation or contact the firewall manufacturer.
Protect the Notebook from Power Surges
To protect the notebook from the power surges that might be
caused by an uncertain power supply or an electrical storm:
■
Plug the notebook power cord into an optional, high-quality
surge protector. Surge protectors are available from most
computer or electronics retailers.
■
Provide surge protection on the cable that connects the
modem to a telephone line.
■
During an electrical storm, either run the notebook on battery
power or shut down the notebook and unplug the power cord.

Next Steps
Set Up Internet Service
You must set up Internet service before you can connect to the
Internet. Your notebook includes software developed with
leading ISPs in many locations to help you set up a new Internet
account or to configure your notebook to use an existing account.
Depending on your location, you might be able to set up
Internet service by using the Easy Internet Sign-up utility
or an ISP-provided icon on your desktop.
In all locations, you can set up Internet service by using
the Windows Internet Connection wizard.
Using Easy Internet Sign-Up
If the Easy Internet Sign-Up utility is supported in the country in
which you purchased your notebook, you can access the utility by
using either of the following methods:
■
Double-click the Easy Internet Sign-up icon on the desktop.
-or■
Select Start > All Programs > Online Services > Easy
Internet Sign-up.
If the Easy Internet Sign-Up utility is available, you can use the
utility to
■
Sign up for a new Internet account.
■
Configure your notebook to use an existing account.
■
Learn about accessing the Internet through a LAN (local
area network), cable modem, or DSL.
If you plan to use a LAN, DSL, or cable Internet connection,
you might need to contact your ISP for information about
obtaining additional software or hardware. For more
information about LAN, DSL, or cable Internet connections,
select Start > Help and Support.
If the Easy Internet Sign-Up utility is not available on your
notebook, see the “Using an ISP-Provided Icon” section next
in this chapter.

Next Steps
Using an ISP-Provided Icon
If ISP-provided icons are supported in the country in which you
purchased your notebook, the icons might be displayed either
individually on the Windows desktop or grouped in a desktop
folder named Online Services.
To set up a new Internet account or configure your notebook to
use an existing account, double-click an icon, and then follow the
instructions on the screen.
Using the Internet Connection Wizard
You can use the Windows Internet Connection wizard to connect
to the Internet
■
If you already have an account with an ISP.
■
If you have a disc from an ISP.
■
If you do not have an Internet account and would like
to select an ISP from the list provided within the wizard.
(The list of ISP providers is not available in all regions.)
■
If you have selected an unlisted ISP and the ISP has provided
you with such information as a specific IP address, and POP3
and SMTP settings.
To access the Internet Connection wizard and instructions for
using the wizard, select Start > Help and Support. In the Search
text field, type Make an Internet connection, and then select Search.
It is recommended that you select the check box provided within
the wizard to enable Internet Connection Firewall. For more
