Was that supposed to be a proper sentance - or two dreadfully joined by a space and no connective phrases?

10 Billion Times is a good deal; you'll probably have to back up why its 10 Billion Times better; as few will say its Twice as good after seriously considering the technical implications of such a numeral.

Is that just a general sort of comment about Virus Protection? I thought you had Firefox! If its 10 Billion Times as good - it must protect you from Viruses, and clean your Arse, and naturally block all kinds of Microsoft programming from doing anything.

In general I agree that MSIE sucks. There have been several severe warnings sent out about it by various agencies this year. And it seems like each time MS fixes a hole, another one appears instantaneously. I never use it for on-line banking (one of the warnings issued earlier scared me away); I'm a total Firefox user now.

Here are some of the warnings and some miscellany about MSIE:

http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/713878
http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=19881
http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=16922
http://cooltech.iafrica.com/technews/393597.htm
http://www.webmaster.ucr.edu/blog/?p=28
http://www.internetnews.com/security...le.php/3374931

There are plenty more where that came from. To be fair, MS is a HUGE target for this kind of treatment, so maybe some of this stuff is skewed; still, MS gives the public the impression that it's not on top of its own holey software. Whether it is or not is left purely to speculation.

Lol; thats an interesting idea - but without Microsoft's backing there is no way to enforce it. I would welcome the idea; it is safe. However, I still think you're all way too paranoid. Maybe you should all get a nice e-mail address (not Yahoo), get Outlook 2003, and be done with it?

You can't do Auto-Diallers on Broadband anyway; and as most people who actively use the Internet have broadband now that is pretty useless. Again - I doubt the existance on a massive scale of any of these things.

And just for the record I do use basic and free internet Virus Scanners - I did it yesterday and I only had 1 Virus - in a Kazaa Spyware File. Where's the danger there?

You could be sending it to people you email regularly..its not just a random email...its you sending the crap to someone else and not knowing it cause you don't use a firewall or AV. Get the crap. Stop thinking you invincible. Maybe someone will cook a doozy up just for you, show you what others go through.

Firefox all the way. I can't stand IE, no tabbing, ad blocker sucks, and it's so full of holes. I'm never switching back.
