      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.

I also like to read reviews, because


1. I can't trust the homepage of the software. They all claim to be the very best in the world and promise full protection.

2. I can't trust the user's opinion, because their reasons are often based on a personal choice or experience.


But I can't trust the reviews either, because several websites have another "best buy" for the same softwares in their reviews. Nevertheless I find reviews always interesting to read.
