Know very little about computers but am having great problems with losing net connections. A friend suggested that I should try Firefox and I have two questions regarding this:
1 Do I have to swap one with the other or can I run both IE and Firefox on the same computer.
2 Since I share this computer with another user, if I download Firefox would it also download to the other user also?

1. You can't delete IE8 anyway. You need it to get to Microsoft sites like Update. It's OK to have both.

1. No. Both browsers ca co-exist and run at same time. You can even install many other browsers like Chrome, Opera, Safari etc.
2. It will be installed for all users but each user will have their own personal settings.

Thanks for your input. FF now installed alongside IE without problem. Co-user none too happy but when I pointed out that I didn't ask for Norton, that I didn't ask for the Google tool bar and that I was very careful about avoiding junk mail, the protests diminished.
