      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.

Make the popups stop!!!!!!

9 posts in this topic

About every ten minutes i get one to three popups in dialog boxes. One of the popups says it's a Windows Protection Fault stating that spyware has been detected. Another says something about spyware and has windows error in the titlebar.

 

I have run spybot s&d, ad-aware, AVG

 

They report that all is well.

 

Here is my Hijack This log file

Ahhh - Much better :)

 

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster and SpyWareGuard and IE/Spyad.

 

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs. SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources. SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.

 

More info and download is available at:

Spywareblaster

Spywareguard

 

IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will several impair attempts to infect your system. It is free.

 

More info and download is available at:

IE/Spyad

 

On a regular basis - Use Ad-Aware to check your system for any and all infections => How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware

 

I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recyle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.
