Board,

I have a few issues. But before I deal with any of them, I need your advice. I currently have Internet Explorer 6 on a Power Spec 9201. Power Spec doesn't make the 9201 version anymore, by the way.

My system is a dual core Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. System specifics: AMD Athlon 64 x 2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 2.21 GHz with 2.00 GB of RAM. About 90% of the system is freed-up. I have a number of security software installed. AVG, Spyware Blaster, Norton, SuperAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes' AntiMalware. They seem to work ok on the same pc. No rivalry, yet. These versions tend to be 2010 or 2011. I have a few other programs, like Nero, Microsoft Office 2007 (thinking of switching to 2011). I have a Canon Pixma MP150 printer hooked up.

I get all these messages on line from various other sites on the web, saying their programs don't work as effectively with IE 6 and advising me to upgrade to a higher Internet Explorer. Is that advisable, and secondly, should it be to an Internet Explorer 8? I hear that people have problems with their pcs with IE 7. So, should I bother to upgrade altogether? Will my security systems still work OK? Which upgrade, if any?

Yes, it should be to an Internet Explorer 8.

IE6 isn't supported by Microsoft anymore nor by many websites, including Google. It's considered quite unsafe.

Update to IE7 or IE8 even if you decide to use one of the better browsers.
