      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.

My Websearch (Smiley Central) won't go away!

5 posts in this topic

In March, my stupid roommate at college decided to download smiley central on my computer while I was in class. Well, I was pretty pissed about it when I came back, and one of my friends who thought he knew what he was doing tried to remove it. I'm not sure what he did, but my computer seems to working okay now aside from the fact that he deleted my games and my calculator in the process. Also, My Websearch (smiley central) still shows up when I go to Ad/Remove programs, and when I try to remove it, it won't go away!!!


If anyone knows how to fix any of my various problems please let me know! (like how can I get my games and my calc back?)


Thank you!


And please take your time responding.... it's not a big deal, just kind of annoying!
