      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 Settings/Zonemap/Domains = porn?

3 posts in this topic

Going under: HKEY_CURRENT_USER / SOFTWARE / MICROSOFT / WINDOWS/ CURRENT VERSION / INTERNET SETTINGS / ZONEMAP / DOMAINS

 

... I find HUNDREDS of web sites listed. MANY are porn sites. My questions are:

 

(1) Just what is this list?

 

(2) Where did they come from? Are these sites that were already blocked when the computer was purchased? Or were they added when I downloaded certain software? Or were they added when someone accessed these sites from this computer?

 

(3) If they were added how do I remove them from the registry? It is a little disturbing to see web sites with the F-word in hundreds of these web site addresses. I went to some of these sites to check them out :gasp: and after that got even more concerned that they are listed in the registry. And if they can/should be removed it seems it could take hours to remove them since it appears they can only be deleted individually.

 

Please help. Thanks.

Leave well alone. Do not delete them.

 

If you open Internet Options, click the Security tab and click on the Restricted Sites icon then the button labeled 'Sites', you should see a mirror of all those sites listed under the Domains key of your registry.

 

Those sites listed are restricted sites that are blocked because they could potentially damage your PC or data.

Agree. Antispyware programs like spyblaster etc, block potentially damaging sites and note these blocked sites in ZONEMAP / DOMAINS as well as restricted sites in Internet options.

 

It is proof your antispyware programs are working. Do not delete them..
