Hey all. At work, it seems like there alot of people who I would call less than computer 'savvy', and so I decided to start compiling a list of basic fundamental computing rules. If you all could be so kind as to post your thoughts on some of these, that would be much appreciated.

I'll post some of mine when I get a few more minutes today =)

#1- Reflect, repent, REBOOT.
#2- There is no such thing as a safe email attachment.
#3- There is no shame in asking for help.
#4- Help files are there for a reason. Use them.
#5- Back up your files, and check the back ups to make sure they are viable.

just thought you should know your list will be useless. no one is going to follow it.

they will continue to open attachments.

they will continue to ignore the Windows Update icon in the systray.

they will continue to neglect the AV updates.

The rule above all others

Don't compile a list of basic fundamental computing rules.

a) People will never read them and look to their neighbor who'll say call the help desk

b) It'll be outdated as soon as you publish it.
