I'll take the risk. It's easy to reformat, but it's a pain in the *** to do it again 10 minutes later when these SP's screw me.
In 5 years of being on the internet, I've never been hacked. I'm behind a routor and a hub, and even if I weren't..I really couldn't care less lol.
This has got to be the quote of the week. Firefox isnt secure. hence the updates it has had over the past few weeks. It was at 1.5 and then all of a sudden they released 220.127.116.11 or something. Which was 3 updates in less that 2 weeks time. Firefox is getting attacked as much as IE6 is now.
If you use SP2 already slipstreamed into your isntall you will notice a difference. I didnt think i would either. Till i did it. I had the same issue as you. But it was SP1 that was the problem. Not SP2 which corrected teh problem that SP1 created. So try SP2 and see if it causes an error. If not i can bet it was your SP1 that was the problem.
I have been on the net for over 12 years. I have never been hacked but i have been attacked. Viruses and Spyware are considered attacks. Being hacked is where your pc is taken over.
But the decision is yours......
