Re FF, the main problem is that it just fails to load at times, I have removed several times and re-installed but just the same even a complete DELL restore did not work. I am running Vista??? Opera is 100% solid ml,
Like some others I have always used FF since my XP days, and currently on my Win 7 Professional system.
I have zero problems with FF ... I did disable Java (as per their recommendations) and that resolved any troublesome issues that would creep up once in a blue moon.
I would urge caution on upgrading to Win 10 ... although there is lots of hype out there claiming how much better it is, be sure to check out the Forbes Tech pages and other reports on it first.
I am eligible for the free upgrade, but have decided to pass up that opportunity. Win 10 would require me to update older laser printers and my scanner, either with new equipment or new drivers. Win 7 works for me ... and if it ain't broke, why fix it? I don't need all the new bells and whistles ... and the headache of learning a new OS after just figuring out how Win 7 operates and where it hides files :lol:.
I removed the "GWX" files from my machine totally disabling the Win 10 upgrade. Those files came in with the last Win 7 updates and consumed 3.0 Gb of drive without my knowledge ... very sneaky Microsoft there ... and suddenly there was a new icon on my task bar. My brother-in-law accidentally clicked on that icon and spend the next 12 hours undoing the entire mess trying to return to Win 7.
I have installed AVG on my old XP Lap top it seems ok at this stage, I have d/l AVG installer but will wait until my McAfee sub runs out in 7 days, apparently McAfee can be a real pain as you can’t uninstall completely just using windows removal tools but hats of to McAfee they recognise this a supply a free remove and clean up tool, so 7 days to go.
Stuck with IE but recently have started to use EDGE. No problems so far and no problems with 10 either.Haqve used Macaffee and Norton in the past but found problems with oth of them. Am using DEFENDER the free antivirus with 10 and quite happy with it
