      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.

Lycos in my taskbar?

2 posts in this topic

I have had some strange things happening to my computer. About 3 days ago I all of a sudden had a new lycos search thing appear next to the clock in my taskbar after I booted up. I have scaned with spybot and adaware they both found and fixed problems but the program was still there, I found it in the add & remove programs, uninstalled it but I am still having strange things happen. When I try to shut off the computer the shut down window appears then it comes up with a error that windows explorer has encountered a problem and must close, after several attempts I was able to get it to shut down. When I boot up it says that it cannot find my profile and it will load the default profile. Anyways I;ve rambled on enough. I have posted my Hijack this log can someone HELP ME PLEASE!!

I had the same thing with the same problems. Lycos search in my taskbar and all around weird things going on. This happened about two days ago on mine. Also when I open IE popups are rampant. Ad-aware and spybot found some things but it happened again. i noticed on mine that there was some programs caught from "adware-betterinet" or something like that and VS/2. I am in the same boat you are so I will wait for a response to your post before I do anything.
