Two things:

1. About every 1/2 hour while on the internet via "MS Internet explorer" the page will gray out a box will pop up saying (Internet Explorer has stopped running, will see what the problem is and try to fix it) after a minuet or so another box pops up (Do you want to restart Explorer and return to your page?) What in the H--- is going on??

2. I downloaded "FireFox browser" I think I may use that. How can I transfer my favorites and also my email account which is with Warner Cable's Road Runner, to the Firefox browser ??

I have Windows 7 and MS-IE is 7.1 I think. IE is not the latest ver. I did, some time ago, update the IE but did not like it so went back to the old ver.

1. IE 7 is a very outdated version. I strongly suggest you upgrade to the latest version.

2. In Firefox Bookmarks>Show All Bookmarks>Import and Backup>Import data from another browser
Firefox like IE doesn't handle your email. You must be using some other program.

If you use webmail to access your mail you get to it in Firefox the same way you do in Internet Explorer.

If you use an email client you don't have to do anything except open the client from your desktop icon.

:whistle: Just to make it nice and complicated for everyone -

Well it depends on how you read the Mozilla / Firefox company structure >> From Mozilla site
Simple Mail is a mail client for Firefox. While it is actually a part of Mozilla, it is an add on to Firefox.
It allows you to get notified, read and write messages for multiple email accounts inside Firefox.

This is similar to Microsoft setup, where it is not Microsoft email, rather Windows Live or Hotmail >> From Wikipedia
For the webmail service once called Windows Live Mail, see Hotmail.
Hotmail (officially Microsoft Hotmail, previously Windows Live Hotmail and MSN Hotmail) is a free web-based email service operated by Microsoft as part of Windows Live.
Windows Live Mail (formerly named Windows Live Mail Desktop, code-named Elroy) is a free of charge email client from Microsoft's Windows Live set of products. It is the successor to Outlook Express on Windows XP and Windows Mail on Windows Vista.
The application is available for download via the Windows Live Essentials suite.

Only enough to mix the conversation up a bit :)

Personally I use Yahoo! and Gmail accounts these days -
