Thanks Chris. I'm using Firefox now and it's running smoothly; it's my default, though it opens slowly. I have one very important question about it though. I just bought gloves on ebay via paypal. I did not see a padlock in the toolbar that indicates in IE that the page is secure. What does Firefox use to indicate security?

  and most importantly, has plugins!
As far as I know I've never used a plugin. Not sure I need any. I have weather.com in my links bar if I want to check the weather. I don't use facebook, myspace, or any of those sort of things. Better image browsing? I don't know, I just google what I'm looking for and browse them there. Thanks for the link though. I'll see if there's anything I'd use.

I don't know that I have a restore feature.  I remember some gateway
computers came with that option, but I don't think my Dell has it.

Anyway, I'm on with IE7 and as I was planning to hunt down Mozilla, I
started looking at Google Chrome.  Does anyone use that?

Hi Kitty,

  I wouldn't recommend using Chrome yet.  It looks like a good browser,
  but it's so new that I see security updates coming out for it
  pretty regularly.  It hasn't been around enough to have the code
  'hardened' in real-world use.

  Personally, I'm a Firefox user.  I used to use Opera, but they lost
  their way and don't work with a lot of sites now.  Firefox has a lot
  of developers, is standards compliant, and most importantly, has
  plugins!  There's a Facebook plugin, Web developer plugins that
  help with programming, weather plugins to display the current weather
  in your toolbar, better image browsing plugins like CoolIris, etc.
  Those plugins really make all the difference for me.

  Once you have Firefox, browse through and see what you like:
