      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.

My laptop is driving me up the wall!

4 posts in this topic

I have a DELL laptop (Inspiron 5150) and for some reason, I'm having these pop up's all over the place. They just pop up if I'm looking at a website. I've tried so many pop up stop programs but of course, they're all the free trial versions. Is there a good pop up program that I can buy that stops the pop up's and also gives me the option of selecting different URL's to block as well?


I also forgot to add that a lot of the pop up's are of this site called 'zesty find' or something. Does anyone else have this problem? I would love to get rid of it!


Thanks! :):wave:

We need a closer look at what's happening.

Please download Hijack



Copy it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".


When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.

Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists


will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
