Death to IE. Long live Firefox.

But in all honesty, I think that might be a problem. Firefox is a lot less vulnerable than IE. You could go with Opera as well, it's supposed to be just as/if not more safe than Firefox.

switching to FF does nothing to get rid of spyware. IE is integrated into the OS. You need to clean the system first
