there's a serious security flaw in Internet Explorer that is making headlines on all major news circuits: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7784908.stm

Internet Explorer has always been a security problem for Window based computers, but it is interesting that this security flaw is making headlines. The general public is getting more comfortable with alternative browsers and less happy with the Microsoft brand. I'll list options to Internet Explorer below.

There are many of us that wouldn't use Internet Explorer if your life depended on it; you can pass this on to your friends and family. For those of you who will not stop using Internet Explorer, you may get lucky and not get infected. And maybe paying for expensive repairs or new equipment is not a problem.

Here is the security bulletin link on Microsoft's website: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/961051.mspx

List of Alternative browsers:
