Although I use Ad-Aware twice a week, I keep getting a "Not Responding" message after a few minutes on IE. I am thankful for Mozilla Firerfox, but wonder why the IE acts as it does. Thanks for your help and suggestions.

Hi hkkippy. Welcome to Geeks to Go. It is good you are using Ad-Aware. I would suggest using Spybot as well. Once you download it and get their updates, run the "immunize" option. It offers some protection from a multitude of known malware risks for IE and Firefox as well. As to why IE sometimes gives a "no reponse" message, could be lots of things. It is interesting that you can get there with Firefox, which is better because it is not as frequently victimized by malware, and unless you have some compelling reason to use IE I wouldn't spend much time on this.

Re m2z2"s suggestion and using AdAware and SpyBot: does it do any good or not to run these programs in SafeMode? I often have trouble <getting> to normal mode. .. wdc
