      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.

To speed up your boot sequence, you can tick these for removal in HJT and click "Fix Checked:"

 

O4 - Global Startup: BTTray.lnk = ?

O4 - Global Startup: hp psc 1000 series.lnk = ?

O4 - Global Startup: hpoddt01.exe.lnk = ?

 

Other than that, you're clean.

 

Clear your Temporary Internet Files immediately. To do this, go to the Internet Controls control panel, then click "Delete Files." Tick the checkbox there, then click "OK.'

 

You may wish to look at Mozilla Firefox instead of IE. It has no security holes, doesn't integrate into the Windows shell (which is a bad thing due to the shell's control over the system), doesn't download anything without your approval, and doesn't get hijacked.

 

It also takes up less resources and uses tabs or new windows (tabs save desktop and taskbar space and make closing windows easier). It also comes with a built-in popup blocker as well as the ability to block images from servers (i.e. advertisements) with a right-click.

 

Firefox is immune to CWS in all its forms. You will _never_ get hijacked by CWS or any of its affiliates ever again if you use Firefox.

 

There's a link to it in my signature.

 

IE-SPYAD places over 4,000 known evil sites into the Restricted Sites zone in Internet Explorer so they can't execute ActiveX, Java, or place cookies on your machine. It's a rather nice thing to have. There's a link to it in my signature.

 

SpywareBlaster can prevent spyware from installing itself on your computer. It does require updating every now and again, but it's rather easy to operate. Just install, run, update, click "Protect," and you're done. Update once every month or so. There's a link in my signature.

 

Happy computing, and don't forget to use Windows Update once a week!
