      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.

AVG and 16-bit program

2 posts in this topic

I couldn't install AVG, with an error msg saying "can't run 16-bit window program: One of the library files needed to run C:DOCUM~1\OWNER~.YOU\Temp\WZS9.tmp\setup.exe is damaged. Please reinstall this application."


This happened after removing the Home search spyware, and probably damaging the shell.dll...(although i downloaded the fresh ones).


any help would be great

I got this message when my Windows crashed and I had to reinstall all of my programs.


What is happening is easy to fix.

Shut off the System Restore and restart the computer, and get ready for a clean install.

No cache, Temporary Internet, History, nothing in the Recent folder, not many cookies, etc.

If you have a firewall and popup blocker on, shut them off.

Delete all zipped viruses/spyware/adware/cookies in C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Recovery, and do the same in folders in the Program Files directory.

Scan the drive for errors and defrag.

Use "Shut Down" this time instead of "Restart".

Wait 25 - 35 seconds and put the computer back on.

Now install AVG and it will go in fine.

You can put on your firewall and popup blocker now.
