ALEKS - Streaming Mode on Ubuntu (Linux)

For users of PC's running the 7.10 version of Ubuntu with Firefox, a very popular free Debian-based Linux distribution, which runs quickly with easy maintenance on Pentium 3's having 256 MBytes of memory, ALEKS runs easily without difficult Linux commands or installations.
Ubuntu (or Fedora or Freespire) are used, if PC's are available or donated with corrupted or illegal Windows installs.
1. Install Ubuntu and update. (Skip Edubuntu, etc.). This requires one long download and a CD burn of an Install CD. Updating takes longer than an install. Ubuntu has the simplest graphics; therefore it runs quickly on old PC's. Freespire has a more beautiful interface, but that slows computers down.

2. Run Firefox, go to ALEKS, then Downloads, then click Install 3.6.
3. Firefox will say a Plugin is needed to run the ALEKS download. Four choices are offered, select Java 6.3 or higher.
4. After this flavor of Java is installed, run www.aleks.com/plugin. ALEKS works!
5. It would be best to make ALEKS the homepage. Edit Firefox Preferences for startup as aleks.com/plugin, and click CLOSE.
6. It would be wise to place ALEKS on the Firefox Bookmark Toolbar also. Edit the bookmark's properties to aleks.com/plugin.
I'm running Ubuntu on five old PC's currently. The only problem is that sometimes the ALEKS page doesn't allow keyboard typing. Clicking refresh fixes this issue - a small price to pay for a free, legal, updated computer and software.

i have an anti virus that I bought, but when sometimes I hit a link or something on the internet, it will automatically detect a threat and it shows like its scanning something like in red color, and it tells me to install something, which is not even related to my anti virus, it seems like theres something totally different that its scanning, like it says anti virus threats scan, what is this? what should I do?
