I have a couple questions, the first being somewhat trivial...

1. my toolbars on internet explorer seem to be somewhat mixed up. i use netzero as my internet provider, and it comes with a toolbar installed for internet explorer. when i try to deactivate the netzero toolbar, my norton toolbar disappears and vice versa. what's going on?

2. i've heard people talk about firefox and i'm wondering if i should be using it instead? i'm tired of worrying about viruses and such, and i'm wondering what the advantages of firefox are?

Thanks for all your help!


Actually, one of those stupid toolbars managed to hack its way into Firefox on my computer - MyWebSearch. Other than that, everything has been OK with Firefox.
