      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.

Home Search Assistent

2 posts in this topic

I finally found out how to remove Home Search Assistent from the add/remove programs.

 

1. Run services.msc and stop and disable the local service, Network Security Service.

 

2. Run regedit.exe look under HKEY-LOCAL-MACHINE/SOFTWARE/microsoft/windows/currentversion/uninstall

 

3. Delete folders HSA, SE, and SW.

 

4. Reboot

 

5. Check add/remove programs to make sure it is gone.

 

Let me know if this worked for you.

Using WinXP, services.msc does not produce "Network Security Service".

Therefore HSA just keeps respawning under a new name ....

On the Services window, I can see :

Network Connections

Network DDE

Network DDE DSDM

Network Location Awareness

Network Provisioning Service

 

(and lots of other services, without the word "Network" in them)

 

Any idea which one to kill ?? Thanks ....
