    Sometimes I am in a place where there is wireless broadband within reach of
    my laptop. Many times this is someones home wireless cable system. My
    qustions is if I use this, can that person get access to my system? Or can
    they record my keystrokes and get my password?

    I have Norton Internet Security on my laptop. Is that enough?

    Save all of your important data to a stick drive and remove it when you are
    on an unsecure network. That way you can be sure nobody will get your data.
