do you generally use? I am required to use IE for work, but my online university job required Firefox, so I tend to use it the most, or I DID until I contracted the Trojans on my work computer last week and was directed by Kaspersky tech support to a remote site which ended up costing me a lot of money for an expensive remote tech fix and the installation of Microsoft Essentials. Ever since they "fixed" my laptop, Firefox, despite the fact that I have popup blocker on, slams me with noisy video ads on my home page and on Cafemom, one after another. I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and if that doesn't work, I'm either going to Chrome or calling tech support (since I am paying for it) and asking them what the heck is going on!

 I use IE and sometimes I have to open up Google Chrome depending how CM is working and what I need for class.

I mostly use Chrome and I like it a lot better than IE.  I still have IE on my computer - DH likes it better so that's the browser he mostly uses when he uses my computer.  

I don't care about noisy popups - my PC doesn't have built-in speakers, so I use external ones which have an 'off' switch.  Unless I'm watching something where I particularly want sound, such as a music clip, I keep them off.  Much easier!  Pop-ups are still annoying (although they seem to happen less frequently with Chrome) but I don't have to hear them.

You're lucky! My job requires that I spend my day wearing a headset. The popups are startling!

 Explorer. Tried Firefox and just seemed to have problems with it, but Dexter swears by it.
