I ran Norton Antivirus, Spybot and Adaware. I had a few adwares, but nothing major. I haven't made any changes to my system. I hate AIM because it starts even after I went to the Start-up page (in msconfig) and opted for it NOT to turn on when I boot up my computer. It added an AOL toolbar (which I deleted). It changed my homepage to an AOL site (which I changed back). Although, most of that is probably my fault for not watching my daughter closer when she installed AIM. She probably just clicked "YES", "YES", "YES" everytime it aked her. LOL
But I guess I'll try Firefox. I hear a lot of people like it.
