Hello again,

Got a question about internet use..
Is it safe to have two Internet windows opened at the same time?
I like to listen to my favorite radio station (internet use) while I surf the net and have been told that it is not safe to do that.
But, the person that told me that cannot explain to me exactly what the risk is.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I think it's quite safe to do so, I always have more then 2 things going on at the same time! I use multiple tabs in my browser. So streaming music and surfing poses no extra hazard in itself.

I would agree also. I normally have 4 tabs going online and sometimes a second window with 3 or 4 tabs open in it. As long as you have a firewall, a good AV running in real time ad practice safe surfing you should be ok.
