PostSubject: Security Notice   12/14/2012, 17:48

Repa, I got this notice when I went to my gmail acct. Screen shot



1. It says "Security Risk"? Is that to be ignored? Will IE 8 be a problem surfing?

2. I need to get a new email provider. I had nothing but trouble with yahoo anyway.

Thanks

No, I get the same message. They want you to update to google chrome or ie9. Ignore it. When and if you have trouble opening and sending mail, then think about upgrading to a later browser. No problems surfing with IE8, but it may stop working occasionally and it will tell you so don't panic - just get out, through the task manager if you have to, and start it again. The same thing happens with IE9, so you're no better off by upgrading. I haven't had any problems with Firefox 16.0.

Repa,

1. The same thing happens with IE9, so you're no better off by upgrading Yeah, I remember all too well.

2. Don't you mostly use IE though?

3. I liked firefox, seemed faster, & I liked it's spell checker, & the way it would correct if you ran 2 words together, & those type of things. What I don't like is I don't know when to upgrade to the newer versions, or which of the add-ons to allow & that kind of stuff. Is there a quick way to figure those things out?

4. I also need to get me a back up email of some kind. I'm not messing around with yahoo any more. All it gave me was grief. Any suggestions for an alternate email account?

Google "Firefox (the updated version) reviews" to see whether they are positive or negative, and if there are too many problems listed or too many negative reviews, wait for a while.

Hotmail is easy to set up, but be sure to use a very strong password if you do use it. Or, you can go to your service provider's email webpage, sign in with the username and password they gave you for setting up your account with them, and use that (don't use outlook or outlook express)
