Hi All just bought my daughter a PC from a friends sister, and am just in the process of tidying it up, such as down loading AVG, and the like getting rid of their old files, etc, its being served by microsoft Internet Explorer, at the moment, but shuld i change it to IE 6 OR IE 7, AM AT THE MOMENT LOOKING ON VIRGIN PAGE AND AM WAITING TO SEE WHICH ONE TO CLICK ON, which would most of you do, or shwould you stay,

Go with IE 7,more safety features and tab browsing is very handy.

postie24 if i go with this will i still keep everything else i have on the screen, such as virgin as my home page google yahoo etc,

It gives you the option of keeping the same homepage,When its installed you can change the toolbars as you like.Click tools/toolbars

Yes you will, there is a but. When IE7 came out the Microsoft release notes warned that "old" tool bars like Google ( not picking on Google in particular) could have functionality problems, sorry read it as may not work with IE7.

IE7 has significant security and other advantages over IE6 (as does Firefox by the way). I always suggest that it's best to uninstall the add ons like Google tool bar then install IE&. after you can go to the Google site and get the latest IE7 compliant version. IE7 is very good and I recommend it. You could also try instead Firefox.

Elbow IE and go with Firefox.

I must be in the minority. No problems with IE7 whatsoever.I have the Google toolbar too. Phishing filter slows it down a little though. For speed I use Opera on my Linux pc.

so what ever i go with IE 7 or fire fox, its best to uninstall google and yahoo first will i still keep the emails addresses i have made for her as i want to get this lot sorted before i send it to her in wales,

  postie24 18:54 01 Jul 2007

Yes you will keep the email addresses,theres no need to uninstall yahoo and google.
