Flo - there is so much I don't understand about your setup I really should not comment anymore.
Just in case it can help you Firefox can be downloaded here: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/
It is an alternativeto Internet explorer, widely regarded as being a major improvement on IE particularly in terms of security, ease of use, and speed of operation. You can run it at the same time as IE without conflict. I use it myself.
I had a look at hotconference.com but saw the descrition P2P and backed out of there at warp factor 9. P2P or properly peer-to-peer is a networking protocol which allows a group of users to share their resources using the internet as a link between systems. P2P is most commonly found in the music "sharing" communities and is notorious for allowing almost anyone complete access to your PC. Want your PC to become a spyware sewer? Join a P2P community!
I have never had a problem in the last 10 years of being connected to the internet.
I think you have been very, very lucky. Why do you think sites like BC exist?
