My computer just recovered from a serious virus/spyware related issue that occured at a very unfortunate time for me (near the end of semester). I would be very much willing to invest in some preventative measures, however, I'm a bit on the fence about this issue mainly because everytime I use anti-virus software, particularly the Norton Anti-Virus program, it would always inform me of problems and when I opted to have it fix them, it would say that the problem could not be fixed. I was deliberating about this point until my computer came crashing down this past week, and thus, I realize that some sort of protection (even when it doesn't work) is much better than none. That said, for my first question I ask the anti-hijacker community, what are both the best anti-virus and anti-spyware programs you can purchase?
Completely unrelated to the first query, my next is concerning Firefox. While I agree it is leaps and bounds superior to IE, the one thing IE does that I can't seem to emulate with Firefox is IE's functionality that opens a new window with the original page displayed. Firefox, on the other hand, opens a new window with your designated home page. My silly question is simply: how does one open a new window featuring the original page in Firefox (ie: behave like IE)?
Thanks a million in advance!
