Right now I have Internet Explorer and I heard that FireFox was a better so I decided to try it. I down loaded Fire fox it would not open. I have gone through all the "advice" on their help site but that just took away internet explorer. I have managed to get internet explorer back and have down load fire fox again but it still will not open. Fire fox would not open when I did not have internet explore. Then this morning I tired to down load House call and I get this missage - "House call will not load due to internal error! Would you like to vist main websit to download - yes/no" I said yes and trend mirco opens with house call but I receive the same message when I tired to down load it again.

You can certainly have IE and Firefox on the same system. As a matter of fact, sometimes you will need IE for Microsfot things (but I hardly ever use my IE).

Start over.

Remove any botched Firefox downloads from your desktop of wherever you saved them.

Use IE to download the Firefox installation to your desktop from here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html

Is says "Upgrade your Firefox" on the screen, but under that is the correct download button for a new installation.

That should put a Firefox Setup executable icon on your desktop. To avoid confusion or possible conflicts, I would close all the other open windows and double click the Firefox Setup executable on your desktop and the installation should start.

You need to verify that the download appeared to be successful, it is on your desktop and you double clicked the icon.

If you get an error, don't try to "describe" the error - post the exact contents of the error message as best you can.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.
