Re: firefox 3.6

Hi:

Keep the new version and be sure to keep your defenses updated.  But be mindful of Zwunzi that plugs itself into the new 3.6 version.  If you have it already, don't panic because there is a fix for it.  Download Malwarebites, the free version, install it, then let it update and run the full scan.  It will remove it from your system.  Then you can decide to keep it or not.  Firefox 3.6 works fine so far.  Also consider Adblocker Plus and  No Script as Add On for Firefox.

Hi harry10,

Before I answer your questions, I want to let you know Our Development team and QA are actively working on the issue and the new update will be released very soon.

1. Yes, the update will be downloaded and installed automatically. 

2. If the kid only has non-administrator rights, the kid is not able to download programs.

3. Norton Safety Minder doesn't send email notifications for downloading programs.

Thanks,

Katie
