i am using firefox on windows 7. i just had the first executed
trojan on my computer, ever (i'm using computers since 1998), after clicking on a random google search result. why? fucking JAVA
. disable it! i thought i had disabled it, but not in this installation. luckily the little shit was rather impotent and i could easily wipe it out.
btw: my favorite computer program is powerpro:
super powerfull shell (explorer) replacement. i use it as such, with litestep for tray. its a scripting tool with user interface elements. you have to invent it from scratch, if you want it to take over your system. initially it's just a boring toolbar.
downside is that developement is almost over (one man project, closed source). since it has a long but easy learing curve i would personally not learn it now, since it may die out soon. still, best toy ever.
