Winferno cleans up IE surfing
Winferno Software's Secure IE provides a program to tighten security for surfing as well as for stopping annoying pop-ups.For novice users who dont want the hassle of locking down Internet Explorer to surf the Web, Winferno Softwares Secure IE provides a simple program to tighten security for surfing as well as for stopping annoying pop-ups. Ironically, the company uses pop-up advertising itself. Its Internet Security Adviser ad, a pop-up that bears a striking resemblance to a Windows Update dialog, will take unwary users to Winfernos Web site to download Secure IE if they click on the advertisement.

Most tech-savvy professionals are better off managing browser security themselves; I prefer not to use another program to browse the Web and instead use plug-ins to secure my Web surfing.
