      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.

New unwanted search bar on my PC

4 posts in this topic

Hello ...

 

I have a WinXP Pro PC. When I boot up a Search Assistant search window appears at the bottom of the screen, in the Win XP bar. I have run Spybot S&D, Adaware, Spysweeper, and Spy Be Gone. None of them help in removing this pest.

 

In the list of search engines that it claims to connect too, is Blaze Find, which I think is a major spy.

 

Can someone please help with this?

 

Thank you in advance,

 

TBatt
