Q Where can I get a safe, quality and free antivirus and anti-spyware program? I have three PCs, and I'm tired of spending $40 per computer per year for security software. One PC runs Windows Vista and the others run Windows 7, and all are currently protected, although I'm not sure what programs they all use.

QI read your reply in last week's column, in which you suggested transferring some complex Excel spreadsheets from an old computer to a new one using a USB cable.

That also gives me access to the files from any of my computers.

QIn my quest to promote sleeping during the night for my three very electronically connected and addicted teenagers, I've decided that this school year I will disable the modem each school night at 9:45 p.m. That will disconnect their many Internet-connected gadgets. (Two kids have cellphones without Internet access.)
