Re: trusted security issue in IE
Ric, you said, "Firefox is superior to IE"
I find that not to be true!
Over the past 10 years, I have used IE4, IE5, IE5.5, IE6, and have recently
bought a new Dell 530s computer with XP. After using IE6 on it for a few
weeks, I downloaded IE7 and have had trouble-free performance. Also
downloaded SP3 and have had NO problems.
Over the years, using W98SE and XP, I have tried Firefox, Opera, Maxthon,
Avant, and a host of other lesser-known browsers and have found Internet
Explorer to be more useful, reliable and user friendly than any of those. I
have rarely had spyware or a virus. I have seen one BSOD (self inflicted)
on the new computer in 3 months use. I believe a regularly updated and
properly protected Wintel/IE machine serves my purposes better than any
other. Of course, YMMV.
I believe the reason I don't have the troubles I hear so many people on the
various boards complaining of is that I regularly install the updates from
MS and use the following freeware items:
Spybot - Search and Destroy
Yes, it takes a bit of time to keep these items updated but the payoff is a
smooth running, reliable, trouble-free computer. Anyone who isn't willing
to take this small measure of responsibility will have trouble no matter
what operating system/browser they use.

I am having the same issue with a couple of sites, however, I did not have
this issue in the past with these sites. If I cancel out 'X' and call the
program up again I do not get the message. I think it is a Trojan and I am
researching it now. In the interim download Firefox browser and you will
not see the issue again. This is a temp fix until a perm. fix is found.
Firefox is superior to IE, however some sites require IE and Firefox will
recognize that and call up IE if you set it up that way. For me, I am
making Firefox my default browser.
