    HEW !!!

    After suffering for over 10 years with the wrong anti varis programs (and I always BOUGHT the best), I found out that the only BEST Security Sorft ware was right in front of me for FREE.

    Hello and I thank you whole hartedly Miss Microspft.

    WHY aren't the consumers told this from the beginning  ???  Why are they encouraged to PURCHASE another anti-varis program.  This is a acam and should be looked into and stopped.

    No wonder the computer business is up and oter anti-varis programs are taking over our comoputers and controlling them instead of the OWNERS of the computers.

    PLEASE can not someone help these poor victims ??

    I thank you Miss Microsoft and "Good Night"

    Martha E. Phillips,

    Have you fixed the problem that does not allow us to use our "Norton Safe Search" in the browser? I find this feature a very good tool to keep me out of bad sites.

    Unable to set the Internet Explorer 9 blocker. Always get invalid filename in the command prompt. Your directions are not clear enough. Why not give an example on how to write the pathway

    Does this also apply to those of us that still use Windows XP (hopefully at SP3+), will it update their systems to use Internet Explorer 8, as I believe XP does not support version 9?

    my internet provider Telus is not compatible with Internet Explorer 9. What will happen to the updates if I opt-out?

    I up-graded to Internet 8 and it crashed my computer – had to buy a new one, so I am always aware of any up-grates

    I have been told by IT people I work with not to install IE9 because it is full of issues. Has it been updated and the bugs fixed?

    I understand from microsoft that internet explorer will only run if you have windows 7 or vista ….if this is true then , since I am running windows xp …surely i will not be automatically updated to i.9
