      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.

NoAdware

5 posts in this topic

When I realized I had been hijacked I started to look at some removal programs. I looked at a comparison chart and one that was highly recommended was NoAdware. So I bought it. (That was before I found this site) I have not seen anyone on this forum mention them. Did I get highjacked again?

I'm sorry, but that was a bad move. Most adware/spyware removal programs that cost money are gimmicks and just put even more of that crap on your computer. But even so, programs that are free work just as good as ones that cost money.

 

Here is a link that has info on many programs including the NoAdware one you bought.

 

The first basic programs you should download are Spybot: Search and Destroy and Lavasoft's Ad-aware

Thats what I was afraid of. Unfortunately, I found this site after searching for more info because of no luck with NoAdware. I have since downloaded Spybot S&D and Ad Aware. Should I remove the NoAdware Program?

gneal,

I would remove it. NoAdware can't be trusted and you don't know what this program does each time you run it.

Sorry for the money, but everybody makes mistakes.

If I was you I would visit this forum on a regular base and read the FAQ, pinned posts and new posts.
