    Microsoft says that they are unaware of any attacks attempting to use the
    vulnerability found. You are spreading FUD. Much ado about nothing so far.
    Get a life. Go do something useful like helping those sorry sacks in the
    Ubuntu forum who can't get their OS working right because of the INFERIOR
    programming in Ubuntu.

    Remember Ubuntu was written by geeks for geeks. Ubuntu has been free for
    years yet most reject Ubuntu as garbage. HA HA HA.

    you and Frank helping me. Keep up the good work!

    BULLSHIT. Your mission is to be as annoying to others as possible. Frank
    and I are doing our best to correct the lies you post on a daily basis. It
    is us who is doing the good work for this forum. Not you.

    IE 7 and 8 under Vista and IE8 under Win7 have Protected Mode *if* UAC
    is on. Neither version under XP have it. It's advisable to use
    Firefox under XP, or Vista/7 without UAC turned on.

    What's wrong with using Firefox? I've found that for typical sites,
    it performs better, and it certainly has a better security record.

    Nothing's wrong with using it. I just didn't care for it when I used it
    and went back to IE.

    I have never had a security issue with IE, or Windows in general. I've
    been on line using various flavors of Windows since 3.1 came out, and
    various browsers before IE, and the only virus I ever had was from a floppy
    disk that I got from someone at work, and the only reason I got that one was
    due to negligence on my part. I still contend that most complaints from
    people and companies about security holes in Windows and IE is from lack of
    protection and/or the means/knowledge to implement it. Like having
    unprotected sex with strangers, surfing an internet of strangers can be
    fatal, albeit computer-wise and, sometimes, financially.

    I also believe that if there were as many PC's using the other operating
    systems and browsers, they would be under attack just like Microsoft. The
    malware authors would pursue holes in those systems just like they are with
    MS. They always go where the money is, and right now that's with the MS
    owners.

    That's just my opinion; yours may vary, and that's fine by me (but I'm
    sure not by some ;-) ).

    With regard to Windows itself, I wholeheartedly agree - the
    pronouncements of insecurity are hyperbolic (at best). With IE,
    though, I think there's a certain risk of unknown security problems
    (as well as known ones, depending on one's configuration, and which OS
    it's running under, etc.).

    I do use IE for certain well-known (and thus trusted) sites, where it
    has a performance advantage over Firefox (heavily scripted/graphical
    sites), but in general, Firefox seems to perform better.

    Absolutely - there have been serious security vulnerabilities in
    Firefox, and non-Windows operating systems, and they should be taken
    just as seriously. I guess the issue with IE, to me, is that it seems
    to be impossible to keep up with them - and we (including Microsoft)
    may not even know about all of them that are known to the bad guys.


    > That's just my opinion; yours may vary, and that's fine by me (but I'm
    >sure not by some ;-) ).



    It's not unreasonable - as much as IE has been something of a security
    fiasco, that should *not* delude anyone into thinking other browsers
    are inherently safer (even though they probably are safer in
    practice). They all need to be updated, and used with care.

    Certainly i DO use IE and i love it
    and i will continue to use it most likely for the rest of my life,
    and the more people like you bash against it,
    the more glad i am that IE and MS exist!
    And what OS goes, for desktop purposes i will never ever use
    Linux or Ubuntu, nor MacOS.

    What the fuck is your problem Aliasshole?
    Nobody gives a fuck what you think about IE.
    Go play with your POS ubuntard OS someplace else.
    All you can manage with that piece of shit ubuntoot is posting BS.
    If it could fuckin play a game without graphic glitches, you wouldn't
    even be here.
    All its good for is typing.

    "its"? What is Ubuntu good for? I'm glad you asked:

    Email
    Surf the web
    Burn CDs.
    Rip CDs.
    Listen to music.
    Watch vidoes/DVDs.
    Scan and print.
    Spreadsheets.
    Presentations
    Newsgroups.
    HTML editing.
    Games like Chess, Tetris, all kinds of solitaire, etc.
    Make videos.
    Edit videos.
    Download photos from a camera and organize them.
    Translations.
    Use a dictionary
    Learn how to touch type.
    Edit images.
    Send and receive a fax.
    Take screenshots.
    Create .PDF files.
    Create and use a data base.
    Instant messaging with over 10 different programs in one including
    Windows Live Messenger.
    IRC.
    Bluetooth.

    and much more!

    What you can't do with Ubuntu:

    Worry about:
    WPA and WGA raising their ugly heads,
    DRM,
    Viruses,
    Root kits,
    Spyware,
    and
    Malware.

    What people, you dork?
    People using USENET?
    Those people know how not to get compromised.

    Your idiotic ramblings are deleted from any web forums that n00bs would
    use.

    You need to walk the streets with a placard hanging from your fat neck
    to reach the right audience, dumbass.
