    Just got my computer back from the shop

    apparently it was full of very nasty things.


    They have given me pctools avg and firefox

    AVG keeps crashing

    Cant seem to save any scores on motorhome fun games using firefox.

    any suggestions.

    Does anyone else use firefox instead of windows explorer?

    Yep, I've used firefox for years and recently swapped back to IE 8 just to try it, after only two weeks i'm back on firfox again. My spelling is terrible and i really missed the built in one that comes with Firefox.

    Its great for browsing and the way it handles pictures is much better for a slow conection like using with a lappy and dongle, it is also not as open as ie to infection but the people with exploits are catching on quick and starting to target it now.

    For some games, banking and one or two other things you have no choice but to switch back to ie, I find 90% of my sites work fine in firefox and just swicth back over for the couple sites that dont work.

    Hi
    Yes I have used firefox for years and never had a problem with it. If a site will not work with firefox I don’t go to that site. :Smile:

    I've used FFox for years on both Mac and Windoze machines.. and have no problems accessing any sites including banking.

    I like the built in spell checker, add ons, zoom feature, one click bookmarking, password manager ..and it's stable on the Mac .. better than Mac's own Safari :thumb:

    Opera is the best

    Opera 9 is the fastest and best browser all round.

    Try it for a week and you will never go back!

    By the way, if AVG crashes, make sure that you have NO other anti virus, spyware or malware on your system. If it still crashes, your version is corrupted, remove it using the control panel and reinstall it.

    Firefox

    I use Firefox all of the time and have no problems with it. Its the browser of choice for a growing number of people - go on ditch i.e. you will not regret it.

    Good free malware killer prog

    Try Malwarebytes.org This is one of the best malware killers around.
    The free version is all you need
    run the program and see if your PC is infected most people's are at some time or another
    my Laptop on vista has all the latest updates and Nod32 anti virus and i still pick up malware now and again
    This is NOT the same as a anti virus killer worth trying for free :thumb:
