If you're using Windows Internet Explorer, it will update automatically. However, understand that if you are not running Windows 7 or 8, it won't update to the latest Internet Explorer versions IE10 and IE11. They are not compatible with Windows 2000 or XP.
Easiest thing it to Google for Explorer update and you'll find info for your particular browser...IE or Firefox, or whatever you are using.

I want to know if I need to update to IE 11? Why do I get a pop-up everyday telling me to do that?

Use Caution. Pop-ups can appear for various reasons and they may not be legitimate.

To check for updates for your Windows computer, simple go to Start > Control Panel > Windows Update and choose to check for updates. If you have updates, go ahead and choose to install them.

It's important for the security of your computer to have an up-to-date browser, which is why you should get the newest, especially since they are free or included like IE (Internet Explorer).

Other good browsers include:

Download Firefox Free Web Browser
Get fast free web browser
Opera browser The alternative web browser Download free
Apple Safari Browse the web in smarter more powerful ways

AVG free edition ...Linkscanner states that I must restart my browser in order for it to work. How do I restart it? Also discovered that "pc security guardian" was installed on my...

a browser restart is simply closing all the instances of your browser (ex. internet explorer, chrome, firefox, etc) and then open the browser back, that's all.

if you got a rouge antivirus like the one you said you got (pc security guardian), malwarebytes is a great option, I would make sure to run malwarebytes again after making sure that is updated to the last database (go into the update tab and make sure that the update date is the current date), then run it again doing a full scan. (it's always good to do this in safe mode, also as the scan is faster and without other type of interferences)

further instructions can be found here

also make sure you do a full scan with your avg antivirus (good antivirus), after you have completed your scans with malwarebytes

if you have any further quesions feel free to post back

hope this helps!

I,ve set up my Nintendo 3d internet but it keeps telling me that the internet browser will be enabled later through system update, what does that mean?

It means that the 3DS is currently not able to use an internet browser, but an update to the software that's currently on the 3DS will be released at a later time enabling the browser

so.. you will be able to use the browser, but at a later date

Please explain what is meant when a person requests me to "open your browser" Where is it? on my computer? Thanks Carol

Applications like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Googlechrome are called Browsers. When you are asked to open the browser, it simply means to open any of the above mentioned application, maybe Internet explorer or firefox or googlechrom etc..... etc.. When you are asked to do so, just double click the application or open it from the "All Programs" by clicking "Start" on your "desktop"

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
