    Hi, I just have a general question about updates.....I have WINDOWS 2000....also AOL...and of course Explorer....when I go to Microsoft to do my security updates, is it better to do it through AOL, or Explorer, or does it not make a difference?????

    Hi MFdNSC, Thanks for clarifying about that.....I have instructions about how to get AOL out of my system when I'm ready to do it...I had MSN, but too many problems with worms and trojans that I cleaned out my hotmail and switched til I can ammend the problems with that...Right now AOL seems more secure with the multiple window things, I can get around the internet easier with it, and everything is updating faster...they have me with a UMC general modem or something like that, and the attacks on my computer have been greatly reduced.....but they do seem to put a lot of stuff in it too.....I don't know enough yet to get foxfire or anything likr that....tried Opera, but could not load photos to eBay auctions no matter what I did, and it seemed a lot of people were complaining, so I got rid of them too...Maybe soon I'll know enough to get out of AOL
