I use Firefox because its faster, renders better,and has some fantastic plugins, but it looks like you Internet Explorer users now have a more compelling reason to dump the browser that hackers love to exploit.

The websites corrupted by the hackers are mostly Chinese, and have been programmed to steal passwords for computer games which can be sold for money on the black market.
Does this mean they can hack into MHFun and play all our games for FREE:Eeek:

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 ::bigsmile:

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:

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.
