    Why not try the Microsoft support facilities if you have a problem with their software?

    get Firefox dude, stop using IE, its insecure, and just plain crappy.

    Microsoft coders suffer from cranial rectal inversion.

    www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

    click on the big green button and run the application, you can import all your ie bookmarks, and then delete all the icons for ie, dont delete the executable as windows needs it to function properly.

    What makes Internet Explorer crappy and insecure? IM curious to know what you think.

    I don't run or use Firefox. I run Internet Explorer only. Most sites are strictly coded for IE (not firefox) so if you run 3rd party web browsers like opera, netscape, firefox etc.... it will not display/run them properly.

    Also, you can secure IE through the *Group Policy Object* something you cannot do with firefox. (last time I checked, that is.)

    Also, you don't think Firefox has it's fare share of vulnerabilities? I think so

    maybe IE isnt as insecure as you think.

    Cheers, cn22

    That is incorrect, and has been for quite a few years, hell's teeth man, I was using Netscape back in the days of NT 4.0 !!!!!!!!! If your site is "strictly coded for IE" I would recommend that you take your programmer to one side and tell him to pick a window because he is going out.....and don't forget to toss his Zimmer frame after him

    You can get a plugin for FireFox that will cater for IE only sites (of which there are very few).

    Though I love Firefox I have run into issues where Firefox running behind a proxy will screw up DNS requests and give you a lot of page not founds.

    I have not found a way through the menus to force Firefox to a particular IP address for DNS requests.

    Somehow or another IE and Opera can do it with no manipulation. This happens on a Win2000 pro laptop or an Ubuntu (fiesty fawn) sharing a connection through a proxy.

    Howdy.

    looks like we got ourself a firefox fanboy. lol. could you maybe provide some more detail on why Ie is so insecure, and please explain what you mean by crappy?

    sorry but you might mean one thing with your few words describing it, but to others reading it could take it to mean something else.
    Maybe clarify it with more detail and maybe some facts with the pro's 'n cons of each browser.

    cheers

    Nope, firefox still won't play with group policy. What I have found we could do is set the config on a clean account then copy the firefox folder out of application data in the profile into everyone elses account then use the ranger software to title check the firefox configuration so that users can't change it.

    Of course, that 1) requires the ranger software (or similar) and 2) means that we can't change the options either.

    My view on the security of firefox is more that it has just as many bugs as IE. However, since firefox is not inserted three feet up the rectum of the OS if it dies it dies alone rather than taking everything with it.

    I personally prefer firefox, I also write websites with firefox in mind. But the reallity is that most people will be using IE. A lot probably use IE 6 still. Heck, according to the hit counter on our website some still use IE5.

    </off topic slightly>

    As for the original question, sounds more like internet connection trouble. Perhaps an insane firewall/proxy or just plain dodgy connection.

    Things are as secure as YOU make them. Out of the box this stuff is designed to make things easy for joe public who outnumbers the cognoscenti by more than Windows outnumbers other operating systems.

    Last research I saw was: IE = 70%, other browsers = 30%. That means that sites need to cater for more than IE.

    The apparent security of non-IE browsers is partly due to not supporting some functionality, and partly "security through obscurity".

    Aard~ You don't really surprise me in thinking that IE6 is the largest browser population.

    IE7......... Will only work with Win XP SP2 or "better" ()

    IE6......... Will work with WIN98/98SE/ME/NT4 SP6a/2000/XP

    IE5......... These will be the few surviving Win 95 and Win98 (not upgraded) boxes.........and possibly some AppleMacs (pre-OSX?)

    Another consideration is that almost all of the boxes out there running unlicenced versions of Windows will be stuck on IE6?

    Depends how much of a software pirate. I expect that LOADS of people have illegal copies of windows, done by more technical friends if nothing else. But a lot less people know that a cracked version of IE is available on bit torrent.

    Yarrrr! Internet Pirate I be,
