Windows Vista IE8 and "add-ons".

 
 
Reply Mon 28 Dec, 2009 11:40 am
Just installed or upgraded to IE8, and now I'm being asked things about "add ons".
"Internet Explorer is currently running with add-ons disabled. Click here to manage, disable, or remove your add-ons."
How on earth am I expected to know what to do when I don't know what "add-ons" are? What is 'recommended'? Why do I have to make the decision in the first place? If 'add-ons' are necessary, then I should not have to decided what to do with them. I know I am green as Kermit the frog, and I need some sympathetic advice.

My advice for anybody asking for it would be to never use IE and to pick a favorite between Google Chrome and Firefox and if you're going to use Firefox starting now, go with the 3.6 late beta and not 3.5.

@gungasnake,
Firefox was much, much quicker then Internet Explorer for me. I will never go back.
