Is it possible to email someone the firefox app?

more options

Hi, My nephew has a laptop with vista on it and until recently it had been working fine, however I found out he had no anti virus and now ie won't load so he can't access the internet. Is there a way to email the firefox application from my computer? Have since added an anti virus and reinstalled ie with no success.

This happened

Not sure how often

You can put the Firefox installer on a USB stick if that person is close enough to you to visit him/her.

You may also want to include malware scanners on that stick to do a scan on that computer.

You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database.

That's really a question for your email service provider, to find out if they allow executables as attachments and the maximum file size - the Firefox setup executable is just over 10MB in size.
