The link by wis is horrendous to read to a plain non techno user like me. I need someone from microsoft sitting next to me as an interpretor !
Basic question for all plain users like me is - is it safe to use with your protection on as in antispyware etc and if you have to switch to something like firefox - how? (which my laptop did not like) and can you still get your hotmail email?
Apologies for seeming green and I can tell that people like me who need their hand held can irritate those more in the know but its a bit of a worry. x
I have been using Firefox for many years as recommended by my computer techie, due to the holes in IE7.
However even he admits that the pressure has been on IE7 as it is the most popular browser for most hackers to attempt to break in to. It follows that eventually if Microsoft find a reasonable fix for IE7, then hackers will ultimately concentrate on the other browser alternatives.
