I had been using IE for years until my browser got hijacked. I used Ad-aware, Search & Destroy and Hijack This and they couldnt resolve the problem for me :o(
So i did a clean reinstall of my computer and installed Netscape. Wasn't too keen on it and moved over to FireFox. Its the *perfect browser*. Theres too many advantages to list but you'll soon find out once you install it!
Give it a try, once its installed, pop over to the extensions page: click here and also take a look at the themes: click here ...im currently using the Noia (Lite) theme.
Good luck to you! ;o)
