      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 Configuration

2 posts in this topic

I am new to the forum as of today and have read the FAQ.

My problem is, I fear, of my own making. I have had Spybot since I bought my computer (02/2003), but I only recently felt I knew enough to configure it (obviously I didn't). I checked the box to automatically mark the problems found, to be removed and to start automatically, upon startup of my computer. I have a Dell 2350, with Windows XP SP 1. I also have AdAware and Spyware Blaster.

Now, when Spybot come up it is a small (approximately 3" X 4" page). Nothing is visible except the words "Spybot" and the checking action at the bottom, showing the items as they are checked. A note pops up that Spybot is doing something to my drivers, asking for my ok. Then it seems to check my system again, and asks me to ok the removal of problems. I do not see a listing of the problems. ever. A minimized window cannot be maximized. When I click on the icon, a flash (as though the program is loading) appears and immediately disappears. I would like to know how to "fix" my goof. I am not well versed in computers, but I obviously know enough to to get myself in trouble. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

HI mfos

 

As you have spybots&d on your computer since 02/2003 - it is VERY outdated :)

 

In the meantime - the latest version is 1.3

 

You can download it here:

 

http://beam.to/spybotsd - scroll down till you see: download - Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.3 -

 

But first you have to UNINSTALL your old version via add\remove !

 

Good Luck :)
