    Hi Jim

    In Firefox is there a way to zoom pages to 125 150 and 200%? If so I might just try it

    Most of the time I use the browser built in to the AOL software, but if I wanna play then I use Google Chrome ..
    When you consider that almost every self replicating virus ever made has been aimed at MS mailers ( esp express )it should not be too surprising that IE 7 is being attacked :Doh:

    Mind you, the reality is that you proly have a less than 1 in 5000 chance of actually getting clobbered so cheer up :BigGrin:

    Not only do I use Firefox but over the last few months I have been playing with a Linux system called Unbuntu, A soon as I feel confident enough I will stop using windows completely.

    Allowing Microsoft updates is a problem for me. I have disabled the automatic update function because for a long time now ms has been trying to download SP3.

    Whenever this happens my machine goes down and I end up having to restore which is a pain.
    Does anybody have a solution to this

    Cheers Jim :Smile:

    I'm using Firefox must say its much quicker than Ex I've also changed because I've had so many viruses lately and all the security software I've added has virtually stopped my computer working. With all the add on's it takes 15 mins to get going and using the web is like watching paint dry.

    Goodbye Explorer:moon:

    hi madbluemad

    i always update windows manually.

    it gives you 3 choices:- express, all, & custom. choose custom & don't select SP3

    In my opinion, the top 5 browsers are (in my ranking of preference) :-

    Safari
    Opera
    Firefox
    IE
    Chrome

    Maybe this will change soon when IE8 is finally made available as a public release.
