Stop Using Internet Explorer

Once again, Internet Explorer has been found with a huge security hole which affects all supported versions. This flaw can be used to install data stealing software on your computer. Ever type anything, um, sensitive on your computer? Like passwords, credit card numbers, etc? One of Microsoft's ways of dealing with this problem is suggesting that users deregister a system file called "oledb32.dll". Yeah, right.

Download Firefox. It has a record of far fewer security holes and they get fixed much faster.
