      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.

Burn anything you want to keep to a CD. That means most of the c:\documents and settings\%username%\ folder. Although trust Microsoft to put useless stuff such as temporary files in there. Don't save those.

 

Save any documents, serial numbers, saved log in information, anything.

 

Then just boot from the cd to reinstall and tell it to format the hard drive.
