Just to add to " rshaffer61 " post
" tofu5 , Quote: do I lose bookmarks "
" rshaffer61, Quote: you cannot uninstall IE as it is part of windows itself " , That is correct...
tofu5 , You are able to Back-up your bookmarks
Also , When you install firefox ( If you haven't already ) It will ask if you wish to import the bookmarks from another location , Such as IE.. you would select Internet Explorer
, then all internet explorer favourites will be imported to firefox bookmarks
Hope that clears that issue up
" tofu5 , Quote I was going to use avast anti-virus but it seems people have been having problems with it also "
I Have been running Avast for quiet some time now , Runs Excellent / VERY smooth !
I Recommend it to everyone
If you wish to not go with avast , avira is also a good choice...
This is only a personal recommendation , As everyone is different we all prefer different software
Best of luck
