      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.

I.E. Very Slow

8 posts in this topic

Home user here so forgive in-experience

 

I.E. very slow (About 3mins per page!!) On broadband so pages usually load within seconds.

 

Have followed FAQs, ran Spybot, Ad-aware, CWShredder, Norton virus check and read posts to remove CWS trojan, about:blank and other parasites/viruses but think something still there.

(Thanks to Tuxedo Jack for help so far)

 

Have managed to delete all MyWaySearch files (eventually!!!) but IE still

slow.

 

Still cannot find c:\freescan or C:\WINDOWS\System32\swchost.exe

 

Have ran Adaware, spybot etc several times since and nothing shows up????

 

Would appreciate some more help to get comp back to normal as my final option is to restore to factory state (and let those b*****ds win!!)

Hope this info helps anyone else with slow browsers.

 

Have managed to get IE running at normal speed again. (GREAT!!!!!) :thumbsup:

 

 

I was running Norton Internet Security 2002 but apparentley this was slowing down the browser (don't know why?) after disabling it my browser is now as fast as ever.

 

Apparentley 2002 version is "not supported" any more so I couldn't contact them for help or to get a copy of the program to un-install/re-install :thumbsdown:

(stinks of 'buy the latest 2004 version of Norton blah...... blah........ otherwise your buggered)

 

Dowloaded Zone Alarm firewall (free) from Zonelabs.com and this works fine. :D

 

Won't be renewing my subscription to Norton

That's OK, but don't forget an Antivirus program!

 

AVG free edition from Grisoft is effective, regularly updated, and you cna't get cheaper than free!

Well thought of by many of the regulars here.

I do have Norton Anti Virus.......until my subscription expires!

Then I will get AVG.

 

One thing though, do they 'work' as well as the big name/well known pay programs. Don't get me wrong, it's great these types of free programs are available but like the saying goes "you don't get something for nothing".............. or am I just being naive

AVG is about as near as you can get to something for nothing!

It is at least as effective as Norton or Mcaffee, and uses a lot less of your computer's resources, thus not slowing it down as much.
