  2. I'll add Avast to this list (assuming one of the other repliers hasn't
    already). http://www.avast.com. Unlike Max, I don't completely
    recommend not using IE6, as you are forced to use it in some situations
    (Microsoft updates for example). You can keep on using IE, but you need
    to definitely practice Max's suggestions about the best Antivirus being
    YOU. Keep Windows updated. Have a good software firewall installed on
    the computer, even if you're behind a NAT or router (broadband modem's
    sometimes have built in NAT's or routers).

    If you want an alternative to IE6/OE6, I suggest Mozilla. Either the
    entire suite (which is Firefox, Thunderbird, and Sunbird) or the
    individual components as you need. Firefox is the browser, Thunderbird
    is the e-mail client, and Sunbird is the Calendar program. You can get
    this at http://www.mozilla.com. Also, you can check out Opera at
    http://www.opera.com. It's another browser.

    I find there are many web sites that lose content in anything but IE. A good example is
    Yahoo web based email. The RTF edditing toolbar does not work in either Opera or FireFox.

    When I come across those websites I drop them an email and find an
    alternative website if at all possible.

    What do you do when your employers web site reacts similarly ?

    It is just a fact. For some situations you need IE. But these are not random browsing
    situations. You know you are going to trustable sites.

    It's all about the PC operator and Safe Hex practices being done first, software comes
    after.

    Yup, can't argue that. Thus, the "if at all possible".

    Interesting situation with the employer's site, though. I guess that depends
    on how much clout one has with the decision makers. :)
