    Dunno.. always thought that it was when ever the wife was out of the room - so is it a fake SMS from a GF to get her out of the house for a while?

    I love it when all these security IT what ever's pop up and are quick to point out problems.

    I mean it's still in "Beta" off course there's going to be something prown to go wrong.

    Running Xp sp3.

    Downloaded and isntalled, no problem.

    It asked me to restart, I said later, double clicked on the icon on the desktop and it created a shotcut , wouldnt run, wierd

    Restarted , launched it and threw out an error message.

    Opened a second window and is running fine.

    Hmm Which Mozilla browser? Are you talking of Firefox one of their other browsers? If it is FF3 that I had assumed it was, then it is not a good recommendation for reliable browser.

    IF IE7 is hanging all the time you have a lot more problems there than just IE7.. especially if it has become a memory hog (it isn't perfect.. but it isn't that bad)

    I use the ie7pro addon:
    http://www.ie7pro.com/

    It comes with a heap of addons, and you can even add more if needed.

    And there are always new user scripts being added, not to mention it has an AdBlocking addon that can be used, kind of like AdBlock Plus and it's easy to find a good filter list that can be intergrated with it also.

    I'd feel that I've somehow degraded myself by using Firefox. Honestly.

    I've been using Firefox for a long time. I don't use ti much anymore because it seems to have gotten more and more sluggish on resources to the point I only use it for specific things.

    I generally use either Seamonkey, Galeon, or something else like Dillo.

    Hmmmm,

    IF IE7 is hanging all the time you have a lot more problems there than just IE7.. especially if it has become a memory hog (it isn't perfect.. but it isn't that bad)
    Which operating system and SP are we talking about here?

    When an application becomes a memory hog it frequently indicates that you have some sort of conflict............. possibly with anti-malware, firewall, and AV applications? What are you running interactively?

    Also, what hardware (mainly RAM and processor) are you using?
