Q: Have you ever been plagued with spyware,
malware or viruses when
traveling? How do you protect against it?
Victor: Mal-ware, spy ware and viruses are your area of
expertise! That's why I subscribe to your newsletter. It has helped
me understand this critical issue and shown me ways to combat it.
So, of myself, I'm not an expert in this area. I will say that my
computers now have virus protection and spy ware software installed

McAfee spyware and firewall to insulate my laptop.
Luckily, my laptop has not been infected yet. However, my home
computer recently underwent some major attacks which you helped me
rectify with your sage advice in your newsletter and website. I
think this happens as a computer reaches "middle-age" and, without
proper software to help it along, becomes 'ill' with spyware,
viruses etc. When I buy a newer computer I will install these
helpers right away.
I would imagine that you have loaded your
"Travel Cheap - Travel Well" eBook on your Laptop travel companion.

thin folder, easy to pack and easy to use as a reference.
Q. How can travelers get all of the
Victor: If a reader doesn't have a laptop computer to carry
my book around with, they can also use the handheld computers now
available with the Adobe Reader installed. Additionally, they can
print out any part of the book to carry along with them on their
trips. You're right about my e-course. It is small enough to allow
for easy transportation in your luggage or briefcase. It's loaded
with my 100 top travel websites! None of which are repeated in my
book Travel Cheap- Travel Well! Your readers can sign up for this
