A browser is the software application you use to visit websites. You’re probably familiar with Internet Explorer. Yet other browsers are more effective for preventing spyware. This is partially because they’re not as popular, and the bad guy spyware creators don’t bother with them as much. Firefox and Avant are two good choices. I use Firefox but my nephew Philip swears by Avant. When I told him that I help people get rid of spyware on their computers, he was incredulous. Wouldn’t it be easier just to have them use Avant? he asked. He’s right, I have to admit. If everyone used Avant, I’d have a lot less work. Download Firefox and Avant and try them out, you may be converted!
And don’t worry, your Internet Explorer will still be on your computer, so you can always use it whenever you want.
