If you want a quick response you need to post in English which is the Forum language .

Translated from Danish using the Bing Translator:
When in all the world has Microsoft going to do something about the browser? It is about to be embarrassing.
Is there anyone who has an idea of what we can do, and what the risk is with the browser?

Hello Bruce ,

Perhps you could translate tis back into Danske for
Bjarke ;-

There is one long running vulnerability in IE which M$ does not ever seem likely to patch !!

The latest risk is detailed here :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/38416/2/

M$ may patch it tomorrow (Tuesday) as there are a huge number of patches due .

No browser is 100% secure ; I personally only ever use IE for M$ updates and use Firefox (default) and Chrome : I also run them in a sandbox (to be extra safe) .

Take care
Anthony

Hi Anthony, What do you mean with running IE in a 'sandbox'?

Hello Bjarke ,

The Danes own the place and put a big red sign over their name when they post ere .

They set the rules and post in English , if , when they have time ; they state (somewhere) tat English is the officail langueage of the Forum and you (normally)get a quicker response . If you get a reply from them in Danske , you have arrived :))

Your English is very good , so don't worry ; if someone can't understand you they can always ask for clarification :) .

Take care
Anthony

Hello L.K.

Ian "Gizmo" Richards explains sandboxing , amongst other things , in some detail here :-

http://www.techsupportalert.com/how-to-secure-your...

I use Sanboxie (even tho' I never use IE , other than on patch Tuesday :(( for Firefox and Chrome , but things like downloading are complicated in a sandbox and in general is not for everybody ; now I know it , it gives be great freedom .

Hope that helps
Anthony

Hi Bjarke ,

I try to be as non technical as possible ; you can also switch language between Danish and English in PSI settings to check details and ask for reater explanation in non techy terms for what you don't understand .

Actually ,I'm British but have lived and worked all over the world and spent a lot of time in won derfully warm Africa , including South Africa ; I have fought against racial discrimination all my life , but there is still a huge amount to do .

Take care and keep up the fight
Anthony

Hi,

Dansk er vores andet "understottede" sprog, eg. vi svarer paa support-mails paa Dansk. Vores forum's sprog er dog primaert Engelsk, og de fleste af vores sodvanelige brugere kan kun Engelsk.

(Translated from above)

Danish is our second "support language, eg. we reply to support-mails in English. Our primary forum language is English, though, and most of our regular posters (you know who you are ;) write in English.

Hope this helps.
