Hi,

 

I am using Win 10 for the first time and would like some advice on the best

way to surf the web safely, using preventative measures against spyware, malware, viruses, etc.

 

Thanks much!

How safe is to run IE8 on Win10?

Always run latest version of IE or any software as newer version of IE will be more secure with more security features  also previous version of software may not get up to date updates any longer.
