      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.

Did I mess up my hosts file?

2 posts in this topic

Hey, I'm using Win 98, and was adding to my hosts file. It usually asks, when opening, to choose the program to open it, and I use notepad. But I accidentally left the box, "Always use this program, checked. Now I'm worried the hosts file won't work anymore. It's still called hosts.sam, but has the icon of Notepad, and automatically tries to open though Notepad. I noticed that one thing I had blocked, itxt.vibrantmedia.com, which creates the double underlines under certain words on some sites, and turns them into links, was back. Is the hosts file still working, and something is just wrong with that, or what?


Thanks for any advice!
