I installed spybot S&D and ran it, but in the immunize section it only stated that internet explorer was immunized. I use netscape as my browser of choice. Am I unprotected and does all the fixes spybot does apply to netscape also? I'm ignorant here and would appreciate some education. thanks in advance

IE just has more holes in it with the ActiveX etc.
Spyguard, spyblaster has things that are for IE only also.
You should get get the two of them also.

I use netacape all the time and I have been safe.
The best thing that any of us can do us to watch out what we do with are email and opening attachments.
I have Norton AV that checks the incoming email. Also have mailwasher that does a scan before the mail get to my PC. Don't know how good it is but it checks. Then I have ZoneAlarm Pro that renames attachments so they have to rename with the right .ext and saved to use. But I check them first before opening them.
Also you can set your nescape has the java turned off. I keep mine off. You may have to turn it on to get to a attachment if you want to save it but it keep you safer with it off.
