I have adware spybot everything you can think of but none have found the adware.
I need java support & flash support but firefox had some errors with it.
Because MyIE2 is built on the IE engine it has the same potential issues with spyware installation that IE would. If you set your Internet security in IE (and thus MyIE2) to at least Medium you'll be OK.
One nice thing about MyIE2 is that it doesn't activate the browser level ActiveX controls (like MyWebSearch). But you'll still have issues with programs like Gator sneaking aboard if you're not careful.
Still, it's worth working out the kinks with Firefox since it's lack of support for ActiveX makes it a little more secure. I use Java and Flash enabled sites with 0.8 without issues.
