      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

AdAware

8 posts in this topic

I am trying to rid my computer of spyware. I have way too many programs on startup. I am unable to download AdAware. It acts like it is downloading but nothing ever happens. I was able to download Hijack this but from reading this site, I know you want AdAware first. Any suggestions? Thanks. P.S. I am a beginner.

which site are you trying to d/l ad-ware from?

post the link if you can i will try it to see if its working.

did you go right to ads-wares home page or trying from else where?

it may be some spyware preventing you from d/ling it.

have you tried to d/l spybot? if so how did it go?

if your tottaly unable to d/l ether ad-ware and spybot you could explain all you have tried and post the hijack log in the proper forum.

but lets try this first to see if the problem can be solved. if not you can post the link to here with your hijack this log.

will check back latter to day!

I tried to download ad aware from download.com. When that didn't work, I went to the lava site. It sent me back to download.com. I tried to download spybot 1.3 but I kept getting the script error message. It did not matter if I hit yes or no, a new script error message would show up. Thanks for any help you can give.

That link works fine for me...it might be something on your computer trying to keep you from getting Ad-Aware. Spyware is tricky that way...

 

Try downloading Spybot S&D from here: http://forums.net-integration.net/

 

There's download links for Spybot S&D, and other useful programs along the top of the page. They should help clear things up if you can't get Ad-Aware working.

I have been able to download and run adaware from majorgeeks. :D I've also been able to download spybot from the site recommended by nortyfiner. Now I can run hijack this again and post in the appropriate spot. When all that is done, I can start to deal with the fact I've been hijacked! In reading other stuff on this forum, a new browser seems in order. Thanks, everyone! P.S. o/s is win 98
