Find the best sites

Recommended Posts

I try to follow the news about security, freeware, tricks, Windows, updates and things like that. I read blogs, magazines and other websites. But I would like to expand my collection of bookmarks and links. What are the best sites? Which sites do you read? Recommendations, please! :P


Edit: Here's a summery of the posts below - and then some:


OBS: The internet is under malware attack constantly. These sites were clean when they were added. But this can change. So as always: be careful, use a firewall and updated anti-malware programs. Use a link scanner such as WOT, AVG Link Scanner, Finjan SecureBrowsing or SiteAdvisor.
