See post 19, I've said many times before, IE suits me, I think this last problem was just a blip, anyway they are easy to delete as I said in that post.

I am sure there was another post above the one I'm writing now a few minutes ago, it seems to have disappeared somehow.

Firefox is much more secure and can actually be tweaked to make it faster than IE. What version of IE are you running?

[Sigh] See post 21, anyone else suggesting that I change please note as well.

Not changing is entirely your decision. But it will, and I mean will, guarantee you are protected from this in the future.
