      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.

Spybot S & D - Version 1.2 + older = NO updates

2 posts in this topic



This is just a friendly tip to pass along (feel free to edit or move if not appropriate). I just love the Spywareinfo site and wanted to give a tip (which you are likely aware of). I learned about it recently from the Internet Tourbus Ezine


*versions of spybot search & destroy equal to version 1.2 OR EARLIER aka older will NOT update on the web even if you choose update*


Once you uninstall the old version of Spybot Search & Destroy, you need to download and install the new version. Fortunately, there are dozens of mirror sites around the world from which you can download Spybot Search & Destroy 1.3. Fred Langa aka Langa Dot Com recently recommended




and that's good enough for me (says Tourbus). Click on a download site at the top of the page [look for the flags]. This should automatically download spybotSD13.exe to your computer. The file is 4.15 Mb in size, so it'll probably take a little over 10 minutes to download over the fastest dial-up connection. As I am fond of saying [and often forgetting when standing in line at Disneyland], patience is a virtue.


The rest of the process is self-explanatory, but if you'd like to see a step-by-step tutorial of how to install and use Spybot Search & Destroy, just head on over to




If you'd like to learn more about Ad-Aware 6, the other spyware tool that I highly recommend for PC users, check out my February 16, 2003, post at
