Searching freewarepalm I found http://www.freewarepalm.com/internetpqa/isurf.shtml and http://www.freewarepalm.com/internetpqa/globeonetungstenweditiont1.shtml . I haven't tried either. I use WebPro, which works great.

I downloaded them both: the zips contain also some .exe that are trojans (!)
so I'm pretty scared about install those palm .prc...

do you know any palm antivirus, just to be sure that also the palm files are not trojans?

thanks
Lore

It's not free, but it's a decent web browser: Xiino. You can find it at http://www.mobirus.com/eng/products/Xiino/ . It costs $24.95 but there's a 30 day demo so you can see if you like it.

I just downloaded and scanned both. The uninstaller for GlobalOne came up as adware, but no virii. I used Norton Anti-virus updated last night.

There are only 3 extant malicious programs for Palm OS, and they haven't been a problem for years. There's no way for them to spread except by people downloading cracked software. All major desktop anti-virus programs scan for Palm virii, so you don't need one on your Palm. Palm anti-virus programs are a waste of money and RAM.
