Using antivirus software When you use the computer to access e-mail, a network, or the Internet, you expose it to computer viruses. Computer viruses can disable the operating system, programs, or utilities, or cause them to function abnormally. Antivirus software can detect most viruses, destroy them, and in most cases, repair any damage they have caused.
Using firewall software When you use the computer for e-mail, network, or Internet access, unauthorized persons may be able to gain access to the computer, your personal files, and information about you. Use the firewall software preinstalled on the computer to protect your privacy. Firewall features include logging and reporting of network activity, and automatic monitoring of all incoming and outgoing traffic.
Installing critical security updates CAUTION: Microsoft sends alerts regarding critical updates. To protect the computer from security breaches and computer viruses, install all critical updates from Microsoft as soon as you receive an alert. Updates to the operating system and other software may have become available after the computer was shipped.
Installing an optional security cable NOTE: A security cable is designed to act as a deterrent, but it may not prevent the computer from being mishandled or stolen. Loop the security cable around a secured object. Insert the key (1) into the cable lock (2). Insert the cable lock into the security cable slot on the computer (3), and then lock the cable lock with the key.

To download a BIOS update: Access the page on the HP Web site that provides software for your computer: Select Start > Help and Support > Maintain. Follow the instructions on the screen to identify your computer and access the BIOS update you want to download.
Backup and recovery Recovery after a system failure is as complete as your most current backup. HP recommends that you create recovery discs immediately after software setup. As you add new software and data files, you should continue to back up your system on a regular basis to maintain a reasonably current backup.
Creating recovery discs HP recommends that you create recovery discs to be sure that you can restore your system to its original factory state if you experience serious system failure or instability. Create these discs after setting up the computer for the first time.
Backing up your information As you add new software and data files, you should back up your system on a regular basis to maintain a reasonably current backup. Back up your system at the following times: ● At regularly scheduled times NOTE: Set reminders to back up your information periodically.
NOTE: The backup process may take over an hour, depending on file size and the speed of the computer. Select Start > All Programs > Maintenance > Backup and Restore. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up and create a backup. NOTE: Windows®...
NOTE: You can recover only files that you have previously backed up. HP recommends that you use HP Recovery Manager to create a set of recovery discs (entire drive backup) as soon as you set up your computer. Recovery Manager software allows you to repair or restore the system if you experience system failure or instability.
RAID 0 (select models only) Select computer models with two solid-state drives (SSDs) ship in a RAID 0 configuration. RAID benefits users who frequently work with large files and want to improve the storage performance of their computer. With RAID 0, data is distributed across both drives. This allows data, especially large files, to be read faster because data is read simultaneously from both drives.
Disabling RAID 0 CAUTION: Disabling RAID 0 completely erases hard drive contents and reformats the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer are permanently removed. Before you disable RAID 0, be sure to back up your information and create a set of recovery discs. Refer to Backup and recovery on page 91 To disable RAID 0: Back up all personal files.
