Do you know what the security problems are? Do you realise that having register_globals on or off isn't the security problem, it's how you write your code? If you're not going to change any of your code, just turn on register_globals. Changing your code to _POST or _GET and doing nothing else isn't making it any more secure that using it the way it is with register_globals on.
