Have the above identified as an insecure browser. It's been patched but still identified as a threat. Do I really have to uninstall it? Have got all my favourites on there and don't have a clue how to move them to Mozilla Firefox.

Used download solution, still identified as a threat when rescanned.

The vulnerability cannot be exploited on Internet Explorer 8 systems with the default settings if your computer supports DEP.

You can import bookmarks/favourites to Firefox :-

On the menu bar of Firefox (very top and left) select->Bookmarks->Organise Bookmarks->Import and Backup (top centre of "Library" window)->Import HTML -> M$ IE.
