Both Internet Explorer and Firefox, but I surf the web with Firefox and Internet Explorer for updates :)

Yeah, well it crashes when I go to some websites. Other times it just freezes up.

Use the default browser which is of course Internet Explorer. I'd been used to it for a long time and wouldn't want to change the browser. :cool:

Browser has advantages and disadvantages. That's why I use both :)

why?
i'm quite happy with it
i'm aware of the benefits of firefox but will they outweigh the initial effort?
if everyone starts using firefox i'll use that, atm they aren't and i find with computers it best to stick to what the majority are using.

Most people won't when using IE, but as I've said before JAPPsmash is not very bright.

Nope, haven't meet that unlucky moments. Just be careful of what you are surfing.

And yes, try to use SpyBot (Is it called like that?) to rid of these problems not only Antivirus programs. :)

Only thing I have is IE6, it better now that it isn't the source of the pop-ups like IE5.

There's no such thing as a safe surf

Yeah, nothing is safe while you are surfing. Those softwares could only stop some part of the treats only, not all totally. Just minimize the 'damage' the PC is having. :rolleyes:

Yep, crackers/hackers (not racist) are always trying to find a way to get through, eventually they do, and then companies release new firewalls and security and the same thing happens again.

It makes there jobs easy when they crack a new system, the company releases another. Since all those old ladies never update they'll just hack them and steal there credit card numbers!!!

intelligence also takes part in preventing this. i only have a pop-up blocker, a router, mcafee security (viruscan and firewall only i think) and run IE. the only p2p i have is shareaza which is everything in one (and supports bittorrent)
