Internet Explorer, the free web browser that comes with XP, has a few problems solved with SP2.
Check out the IE Add On Manger in Internet Explorerâ€™s Tools menu. This lets you manage the add-on programs (like toolbars and other extra programs) that IE uses. Itâ€™s a good place to go in the event that you get a browser hijacker installed or other spyware or adware.
