Yep, I've been waiting for more reviews, too. I don't even know what Windows Live is, but iTunes updates drive me crazy. The only way I've been able to do it is to restart in safe mode, delete the temp folder, restart and update. I haven't done this latest one because of the hassle. As long as it works I'm fine with it.

BTW... your signature has a huge gap at the bottom. I have to keep scrolling to get to the next post because your post and sig takes up my whole screen+.

Guess I'll stick with Firefox 3 whatever until it stops working. I actually prefer IE by a lot. So many things won't work in Firefox that will in IE, at least on my computer. I have to use Firefox for the online work I do, though.

FF3 is great and works fine. I only do minimal buying on-line

If you banking,buying or payments on-line, then FF4 is more secure and faster.


Eventually we will all have to update but in the mean time...save your bookmarks and do regular back-ups of your work.!!

Is it okay on your screen now? I dunno what happened to cause all the blank white space. I think I fixed it now.

Really? I hate IE and never use it and I rarely ever have a problem with any websites I go to. We must go to different ones.

I prefer FF too, but I use IE for my work email, to keep it separate from the email with FF. One of my jobs didn't like FF for the webbased email for its company so that's when I set up IE for that.

Your sig is fine now Dollyce, but I just noticed mine has blank space now....

The only viruses, worms or bots that ever affected my computer was when I was using IE and Norton Anti-Virus. And oh my...the hours and hours spent doing a re-format and tweaking and restoring everything...I just cannot tell you what a hassle IE and Norton brought my way. I liked the IE browser, don't get me wrong...but it isn't safe. Maybe the EVIL ONES put more crap out on that browser. I dunno.

Since I switched to FF and McAfee Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware...I've never had a single solitary problem!

It was actually one of our members who told me that A) Norton doesn't work...and, B) IE is the most dangerous browser to use.

He uses LINUX OS, but he is a techie kind of guy. He recommended I use FF and McAfee. I switched and never looked back!

So I use FF for safety...and it works just great. McAfee is wonderful, too.

Yes, the hackers and virus mongers are more able to get into IE's code than other browsers. And since more people use it by default, the junk propagates faster.
