My grandma isn't very computer savy. Her CD drive was broken so we had gotten a new one. I opened the case and she almost fainted. Thought I was going break somthing. My grandpa is even worse though. If his computer has like a screen up on it or anything he don't know what to do. It may be a window I forgot to close or somthing.

If you like it, I can help you....

You will redirect all iexplorer.exe shortcuts to Firefox.exe
That way no matter what, IE will be clicked and FF will load.

Or delete or hide the IE shortcuts..

Then for the FF icons.. right click and use the "Change Icon" and make it look like IE.

I say IE, unlike most people. Sure, FireFox runs smoother, but IE uses more CSS that FireFox, and FireFox doesn't support transparancy, filters, OR Sidebar properties. I use FireFox to download stuff, but I use IE to edit my website, and other stuff. Some cool codes in IE are crappy in FireFox. IE is better in ways, and FireFox is better in other ways. But IE is better, IMO.
