Good reason to install click here may be not perfect but better than nothing.

I think the links goes to Firefox but there is an IE version as well - or may be it detects which browser when you open the link.

Another program worth looking at is Firetrust SiteHound. It has versions for IE and Firefox.

Thanks for the link. I've just installed it and note, with satisfaction, that this forum website is classified as safe. Hard to believe when you consider the number of shady characters working at PCA! :o)) Spoken in jest, of course. TC.

There are versions of SiteAdvisor for IE and Firefox - I have both installed.

I have both installed - perhaps it wasn't clear in my post about there being two versions, sorry.
