i wouldn't completely uninstal ie as it will knacker several microsoft bits and bobs- but well done with firefox 😀

have you got adaware and spyware search and destroy? they're both free and VERY effective when used together.

Did it occur to you that if you hadn't added all those "cool" free enhancements to IE, you wouldn't have had a problem in the first place?

Do not add anything that isn't on the firefox site to firefox.

Never, I repeat, never go to these free software sites to download anything.

yes , ive got both adaware and spybot ,the scans this morning fixed some problems and a system scan with avast and avg removed some virus s
but i was still gettin mobile phone ring tone ads and somthing about win antivirus and even an adult friend finder popped up. i ran adaware and spybot again but they found nothing .so i cleaned the registry still i kept getting ads and somthing about tracking 101 🙄 . im a bit of a pc novice and i dont if possible but it seems to me IE is infected or been planted with somthing . so i thought id try this fire fox . only had it 1 hour ill never go back . 😀 thanks for replying
