The Purple Parade is marching in full stride to the beat of that 'other' drum we all hear, but generally ignore.

Quoteif i use firefox of mozilla, will i still be able to use internet explorer though? (by the way, i have only 128 mb of ram... which i'll update probably in a few months. i was wondering, does firefox and mozilla demand higher ram than explorer?)
QuoteMadesp.s.: thanx for the tips. i had completely forgotten about spybot... however, i rather not use those types of things. a friend of mine in the big TO used spybot (after i told him about it) and he deleted some file/s with it, and then his computer wouldn't reboot anymore. his father fixed the computer. i just don't have the technical assistance for that if it happens.
QuoteIs it mayhap a grey box that apears, named windows messanger or something like that? If so, they are useing a program in windows XP, that is suposed to be used by system admins, to inform you about things. Update windows, and it shuld go away.
QuoteThat Winfixer2005 is a nasty, annoying piece of spy/adware. It screws with the registry and a lot of other stuff if you install it, so DON'T install it. But for some reason it can still infect your system (it did mine anyway...). Try out this link: http://forum.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=si_virus&message.id=44277I used XoftSpy and it managed to find all the files that were altered that neither adaware nor spybot could. Unfortunately, it isn't free.
Quotehttp://its.ndsu.nodak.edu/help/exploit/messengerexploit.htmmight be of interest to you. Remember, its not spyware, a virus or anything harmfull on your computer, its simply someone who uses an exploit in the messenger system. I cant say for sure if the link that i sent you is safe, as i updated my system, but it at least looks like a serious site (check the URL) (Yea, that feels safe... make sure that you have a firewall and a virus scan installed, if you are about to use that thing. If it acts fishy, dont let it get out on the internet, and remove it as soon as possible).Hope that helped.
