I can't see the Sentence your Quoting it must be from the links he posted ?
if so the link should be Removed to avoid anyone taking this advice course !
I agree that is not a recommended thing to do,
Activating EPM is better a much Safer option and your thorough example on Post 10 of your original link in Post 2 is ultimately the course to take,
Sorry can't help with Firefox or errors with Avast but hopefully someone can assist.
Cheers.
Mike1977 does not have a good "issue updating" record not since 10/ 2011

Edit,
Thanks for clearing that up I do see the paragraph now must have been site issues I did read all of his replies looking for it lol ?

The forum had issues last night; perhaps my last post will look correct if you clear your browser's cache.

I quoted andrew129260 when he said, "The reason internet explorer crashes is due to internet explorers protected mode."

I also have a code box with the HTTP URL to that I set as the home page for each browser and the HTTPS URL that each browser was redirected too. In my opinion, these links are not dangerous. (See this current VirusTotal link that shows the HTTPS link to be clean and this earlier VirusTotal link that showed a Phishtank hit that might have started all of this in the first place.)

Yahoo Mail Accounts Have Been Getting Hacked for Months

I have lots* of active yahoo e-mail accounts... none of which show any signs of being used by others. Perhaps I've just been lucky or the bad guys skipped my accounts since I have no contacts stored in any of these accounts for them to spam.

*I have lots of online accounts (such as the one for this forum) and I sprinkle the e-mail accounts associated with those accounts across various e-mail accounts.
