As has been said before, take a good look at Mozilla Firefox. It's
largely immune to all the scumware that attacks IE (dodgy ActiveX
controls, start page hijacking, blocks popups). Everyone I've
recommended it to has given up on IE except for sites that *must* use IE
- hopefully before long the worse offenders (are you listening,
Halifax/Bank of Scotland and Scottish Power?) get a small amount of clue
and fix their websites.

Might be worth replacing Outlook Express with Mozilla Thunderbird too,
if you use it. Its builtin spam filtering has made my girlfriend's
parents email usable again. Well worth the time to download.
