Will fixing a friends laptop at my home compromise my home network

Recommended Posts

you might think along the lines of "hygienic practices" ...

use a thumb drive to download the needed programs and updates for them , use this method to copy the files to the "patient" .

always scan the thumb drive for viruses/malware when you plug it back into the source machine (settable in most AV/AM products) .

when you are reasonable confident that the "patient" is not carrying herpes , then you can hook up to your network .

personally speaking ...

i have hooked infected machines up to my network and not had a problem .

however ... i employ paid-for AV and AM , layered protection and a mojo bag at/in each comp on my network .
