I'mmmm Baccckkkkk!














So many files, pictures, uploads, etc. are easily downloaded to a pc, that it is like an open door.   And all the virus and mailbot systems are pretty much useless because the hackers load bypass codes to the program language.   
 Firefox has a better protection system than Explorer so I went that way.  But there is a learning curve involved.  It is not as user friendly and takes some getting use to it.

I have learned enough about how easy it is to get one’s computer infected that I have become paranoid about receiving stuff. 

Anyrestore, I’m back and will be spending some time catching up.  I’ll be back to my usual shenanigans as soon as possible.

Welcome back. Yeah I know what you mean about receiving stuff now. Once bitten twice shy.

I've been using Firefox for about 5 years now. Piece of cake.

I love Firefox and have been using it for about 4 years, I'd say. I also use Vipre anti-virus, anti-malware and firewall. Its done good by me. If you get a virus, they will fix your machine for free by remote. Hope I never have to call on them.

FF will server you better for sure. All the Winderz types I know use FF for the security it offers. Some fun add-ons too if you want to get all geeky. And if you mess it up, you can quickly remove it and reinstall.

And you heard this from a mac guy.
