      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.

midaddle malware

5 posts in this topic

I have read the FAQ and have run Spybot 1.3 and Adaware 6.0 with all updates and still no luck. I may have goofed though because I ran Hijackthis and deleted the only line with midaddle before I read your article. I hope you can help.

Here is the latest scan, I did not find the files you told me to delete from documents and settings and they were not hidden. I did find a program file called M5Eu and sent it to the recycle bin. After rebooting, the midaddle file was still in common files but this time when I deleted and rebooted it was gone! You guys are fantastic. Thank you so much!
