Homeland Security is advising Americans not to use the IE browser until a fix is found for a serious security flaw.
Windows XP, no longer supported by Microsoft, will not likely receive a patch if and/or when one becomes available.
Users of all operating systems including Windows XP, should immediately *consider* switching to an alternate browser, (listed alphabetically, no preference given):
*Chrome, by Google (http://google.com/chrome)
*Firefox, by Mozilla (http://firefox.com)
