      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.

ie 6 Address Bar Won't Search

2 posts in this topic

Hi ... Please help!!! Un able to search from address bar in internet explorer 6.0. After typing in a word (or words) to search, the browser shows an hourglass or sometimes brings back results such as "http:///?%20computers" with page not found error. I have checked all ie settings and tried re-setting ie to ie defaults.


I have read the FAQ here following directions and have run current versions of both pest patrol, spybot and ad-aware and spyware blaster all with the latest updates. These programs found and removed spyware and adware, but did not solve the ie address bar search problem (running Windows XP Home and ie 6.0 with latest updates)


My HijackThis log is shown below. Thank you for your help! :cool:
