      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.

5 Malwares of Fun

6 posts in this topic

Alright. Long story short, I stopped using Mozilla firebird for one night (in antcipation for .9) and used IE. I was overjoyed when I found all the malware that I received. I love presents!


My first stop was Housecall by Trend Micro. Sure enough IE crashes when I go there. No worries, right? I load Housecall on Firefox. It tells me to download a program designed for netscape based browsers so housecall will work. This file will not recognize my firefox plugins folder as my 'plugins' folder. So I bite the bullet. I download netscape. Get to the same program page. Download it, it won't recognize my plugins folder. It won't install in any directory either. So Housecall is out.


I download CWShredder. Run it. Fix what I can. Problem is still there.


I download HijackThis. Run it. Fix what I can. Problem is still there (Log posted at the end of the post).


I download Ad-Aware. Run it. Fix what I can. Problem is still there.


I go to Mcafee.com and run their free scan (you know that annoying one that just tells you what's wrong). I get this fun list of problems:







I search the web but only find updates for mcafee or norton to get rid of these problems.


Housecall won't work, so I download the trial version of pc-cillin. It doesn't find one 'problem' on my computer. Great.


List of fun things that happen:

IE Loads slowly

Pop Up Ads


Changed Homepage to a local file


So what's a mate to do? I eagerly await your response.
