      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.

OK, I D/l a new antivirus program called AVG antivirus, and after running a scan it detected 6 invected files called trojan horse dialer, on the first scan it said it healed them, then i did another scan, came up with the 6 again, and this time would not heal!, and could not put it into the vault either!!, What now?, :whistle:

Hi bossychik

 

You did NOT tell which Operating System you have :(

 

IF you have winme or Win XP: DISABLE system restore - scan again with AVG - then ENABLE system restore.

 

Instructions here
