      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.

Underlined and Adware

4 posts in this topic

My PC/Browser is running slow. I get Adware popups 'your PC is infected with spyware' when I come away from my homepage.

I also have 'underlined. words that I know are not originally links but now are! for instance every mention on this site of the word 'porn' is underlined and now links off to a site (http://search.information.com/search.phtml?srch=10878419891180087898&a_id=5977&creative_type=1&position=&kwd=porn&sa_id=AA1VDw).

There must be a/some program/s running in conjunction with my IExplorer, but Im lost. I run Spybot and AVG regularly, and use Zonealarm.

Spybot finds the odd one. I just ran it and have 'Commission Junction' - keeps coming back as well as ?something? Avenue.

AVG says all is clear.

Checked through zonealarm. nothing obvoious there - although it does keep popping up sometimes and asking if I want to run 'Media tickets' ??? I've told it NO and ticked the 'remember' box - but it still comes back.

Sorry if thats long winded...

Hmmm. XP - Control Panel - Internet Options - general Tab.

All of the 'Home page' inputs - 3 buttons and a textbox are all not available 'dimmed out'. I know tht Spybot put some restrictions on changing the home page via IExplorer Tools, but I was once able to change the home page via the above mentioned route.. until I just tried it now.

lue]That seems to have done the trick... well.. so far so good.

 

Thanks for such a prompt response. having looked at the fix list, I should have seen the obvious ones I think. Now I need to check out the sites being visited by all the other users and how the downloads are getting onto the PC... nightmare!

 

Thanks again.
