      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.

Internet not working - virus/adware? im not sure

4 posts in this topic

My internet is not working, when i open up the internet page i get a 'search for' webpage ( a directory of websites)

 

I have ran Ad-aware and Spybot and deleted a variety of these viruses, but this has not fixed the problem.

 

I have saved winsock (brings back internet connection) and also hijack this onto a floppy disk, but i cannot run these from the computer.

 

I get this error when trying to run these

 

A:\winsockfix.exe is not a valid win 32 extension.

 

 

Can anyone help on how I can get the net back up?

cheers

Hi

 

try this to determine if you have winsock corruption

 

click start-run

type in command and press enter or click ok

 

a dos window appears

type in ping www.yahoo.com

if you get replies you should be able to browse

 

if you dont get replies then try

 

 

ping 216.109.117.207 and press enter

if you get replies here but not when you pinged yahoo you're DNS server is down or you have winsock corruption.

 

If you have windows xp try the instructions in this article to fix it:

Just to add to your computer troubles, the error you got

 

"Manifest parse error invalid at the top level of the document"

 

Errror SXS.DLL syntax error "D:\1386\asms\6000\,SFT\WINDOWSCOMMON\CONTROLS\CONTROL.MAN" on line 0

 

Points to a bad or corrupted XP install disk.

 

Here is microsofts comment on this

Have you ever used the disk before? Maybe you can get a replacement from where ever you got it from.
