Why would you want IE anyway... what an excuse to bin it.

Not everyone knows where to get firefox. furthermore, IE8 has fewer holes in it than most. anyway, Get Chrome! (talk) 15:29, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

I fully agree with Wikinews and the EU concerning "All Versions" of IE has the potiential for being a hazzard to ones computer. IE 9, for example, gave me a Root Kit infection which resulted in me losing everything on both my C-Drive as well as the 300 GB external hard drive I was utilizing as a backup; as both were so infected. It also allowed someone to access my computer so a total removal and re-install of Microsoft needed to be done. I believe one would be better off going with any platform other than Microsoft; eventhough Microsoft's support is great. The worst computer, and support staff has to be that of "TOSHIBA'S" Customer "No Service". They do nothing but lie and scam the owners of their computers. I have a Toshiba Satellite that just turned one year old on June 4, 2011 and I have had nothing but problems with this piece of junk since the beginning. For the most part, at least with me, Toshiba's support, or lack thereof, has caused more problems than they correct; even going so far as to undermine what Windows Support do to correct Toshiba's screw-ups. Toshiba's warranty sucks as well does their words.
