Hi - When I copy something from a website, for example a URL to paste onto the address bar or something to copy to wrod, it a) won't let me paste it, b) freezes IE and c) closes all IE windows. It's only been happening for a week now, with no explination. At first I thought it might be adware, but ran Adaware a few times, made no difference. It's IE 6, running on XP SP 2. Thanks

Adware isn't the only bad stuff out there. AdAware SE can not and I stress CAN NOT be used solely by its self to protect your machine. You need to go through the guide HERE
This guide will clean 70% of all problems from a machine, however if you are still having problems, and you MAY NOT be please post a HiJack This log in the Malware forum. Once you have a clean bill of health, if you are still having problems please return to this thread for further assistance.

Did all mention scans. Forgot to save log fil for Ewido as had to restart Windows after updating. Ewido turned up one thing "Not a virus.Pornware.PopCap.b (from quarintine) Below is HijackThis log file (which ironically pasted with no problems, but still problems copying from internet to address bar or word) Thanks! :tazz:

Heya!

I noticed you were having trouble with Internet Explorer, and i wanted to try and shed some light on this with my limited knowledge of computers :(

Internet Explorer is largely the most popular Browser on Earth, so it's safe to assume it's gonna be the prime target of ALOT of spyware/malware/virus's and generally all kinds of nasty html/java exploits that can just bypass internet explorer's security and wreck havoc onto your PC. :tazz:

I'm sure you're probably aware that there are alternatives to Internet Explorer, but alot of people don't realize how effective they are!

So if you're willing to try out a different browser, i'm sure you wouldent be disappointed.

At the moment, i use Opera which can be downloaded here.

It is almost completely immune to all major Internet Explorer exploits and bugs, and it is constantly being updated. It allows you to have a personalized mail account built in, it has a google search built in, a zoom, and a load of security features.

The best part about it, is that unlike internet explorer, you can run countless amounts of Web-Pages but they are all neatly organized inside your opera browser for quick viewing and multiple surfing. And it doesnt completely destroy your quickbar at the bottom of the page, like IE does. ;)

So goodluck with your problem, and i hope you try another Browser soon, i'm sure it would help you tremendously. :)

I have actually tried Opera before but I found that I never used it so I uninstalled it. It just annoyed me for some reason, but I did find that multi-page feature very handy. Thanks for your help anyway. :tazz:

I did download Ewido Security Suite yesterday, but I already have Norton Anti-Virus, will these two programmes compromise each other???... just checked, it's ok.

Try FIREFOX if you didn't like Opera. I use both of them extensively, however I NEVER use Internet Explorer. It is simply to much of a risk to us :tazz: e and risk damage to this INVESTMENT (my computer). That said the choice is still yours though.

Want to see the risk you take when you use IE click below or goto google and search 'internet explorer security risks'

To me using Internet Explorer is like throwing a lit match into a bucket of gasoline, sooner or later its going to blow up in your face ;) .

Downloaded and am using Firefox at the moment, I like it much better than Opera. So that's a plus. Also I don't have the copy and paste problem with it. Thanks!

Since you like it, you should check out the extensions for it. Firefox is 500 times better once you download and install some extensions that you may find interesting and useful.

Finding a theme that is appealling to your eyes will make firefox that much better as well because you will be looking at something you like.

Spred the Firefox word, Mozilla needs our help to keep this great product alive. :tazz:
