    Hi, I'm Looking for some direction. The stage coach finally got through and I can now get Adelphia Braodband. I now have AOL and have figured how to extract my emails/addys/favorites. I also have AVG free antivirus, Sygate firewall, adaware SE Spybot and spyblaster. I'm not sure if I need better or different protection, if any email services come with Adelphia, do I just run Internet Explorer or go to foxfire? I have outlook express available with a click.
    I'm waiting to down load the Microsoft SP-2 as I think I should get the feel of broadband before I put something on that may cause problems.
    Any help would be apreciated. This is almost purly a financial move as I got a great "Combo" tv/internet deal and can drop expensive sluggish, "heres your surprise for today" AOL and also drop Dish which has gone downhill in the last 6 months. Both combined cost me 75 smack a roo's....Plus I want the SPEED!!!
    Thank You very much
    Bobby, Just an excitable boy

    Bob: Welcome to the wonderful world of DSL.
    I'm confused. In your first paragraph, you said you now have AOL, and in the second paragraph you say you can now drop sluggish AOL.
    If you dropped it, why in the world would you want to pick is back up?

    Sorry for the confusion. I HAD AOL Dial-up. I am Installing Adelphia Cable internet. I'm trying to prepare by exploring any extra security, e-mail options I may need. Example. When I first got my computer, I knew nothing about adaware, spybot etc, only that I needed Norton anti virus. I now have AVG, for free, and Reg seeker which practically does the job of Norton System works. I'm trying to avoid a disaster by asking questions. I'm getting rid of AOL completly as soon as everything I can transfer is transfered.
    Thanks
    Bobby

    Oh, I see. I think AOL is a good ISP for a guy that is unwilling to learn about his computer and browsing the net. However AOL is so intrusive and invasive that I wouldn't want anything to do with it.
    Have fun with your new toy.

    Flags. Don't know what I said or done to get an answer back like that. Please don't forget to take your medication, it'll help with the confusion.
    I know how to research, my computer is not a new toy, and if it is because I used Aol for a while, then sorry to waste your valuble time you bigoted fool.
    Bob

    Ouch!! Sorry, Bob04, I didn't mean to offend you.
    I just don't like AOL.
