Dear all,

I do not knew why, but my PC crashes once in 10-15 months and I loose a lot of data and have to spend almost a week for reorganizing the documents/pictures again.  It is due to computer viruses which I get from net.  Last week it was a virus named Infostealer.  The system just stopped connecting to net.  It also slowed down very much.  So ultimately I had to reformat the hard disk and load software and data again.

I use Norton Antivirus and keep it UPDATE.  I have a broadband internet connection.

Can some of you tell me why does it happen so with me?

My 19 years old grandson, who is a computer buff like most teenagers says that the culprit is Internet Explorer and Outlook Express.  He says that these software are highly vulnerable to viruses.  He says that I must start using new programmes.

Now he has changed my browser to Mozilla Firefox.  But the Outlook Express is still there.

What are your comments.  If the boy is right, which software should I use for e-mail.

I have a gmail account but I DO NOT find it as convenient as outlook express.  So I do not prefer to use it.  Then, one has to stay "ONLINE" for it.

Kindly suggest me some alternative e-mail programme.
