Does anyone know any tips on how to stay safe on IE8?

I was oddly logged out once last week and I signed back on and immediately changed my password and made sure the email hadn't changed. I chance my word at least once a week and anytime I snipe something or any time I get that feeling in my gut. I tried NoScript is annoyed the tar out of me.

I change my password a lot too, especially after a really good snipe.

Since I got frozen, and watched Nicole and Amber go through it too, I change my password daily now.

IE is the fastest way to get viruses, spyware, cookie grabbed etc. There's a bunch of cookie grabbers that actually dont run on firefox but runs perfectly on IE.

Now this is odd. Since I have no account, i decided to snoop those idiotic pages using a very special browser. It's a fake login page that's almost identical to the real one, except the information you put in gets sent to the idiot instead. However, there was no CG script/flash exploit unless they're using php to do it, which means noscript and flashblock wont help if you were to accidentally click those links (you would have to immediately log out instead)

Another heads up.. People have been doing the fake login thing with tarla alerts and what not. Look before you click!

It's sad that this is still going on so frequently. I remember this being a huge fear of mine THREE years ago, before I quit. That actually being a huge factor of why I had quit for that time.
Thanks for the tips!
