    I'm noticeing when I try to copy something someone says then reply, when I paste it into the reply field I get something totally crazy. This might be an old issue, but I've been gone for awhile. Here is an example of something I just got...

    I get that occasionally as well. The thing I do is just re-copy and re-paste. Takes more time, but it's always worked the second time for me.

    I got the same thing two weeks ago. I think that is a virus? because my PC showed a virus warning that was hiding in one of the adds. I cleaned my PC and the problem was over.

    If you have a XP down load the lates security system for the XP computers that right now is free. Hopes tha you can solve your problem.

    Yes, it works after the second try for me also, but it's really annoying, and it only happens on this site.

    Definitely some sort of spyware... noticing the "targeting" and "adcontext" in the link.

    Also there is another problem. If you let the thing keep going in your PC later you will not able to post anything or little because you are going to see an error message any times you reply to a post. I think that thing affected my replys too.

    Better get the free security system. ;)

    Now that's interesting.

    The best solution is to get Firefox with adblock. [face_mischief]

    looking at that URL, you've got a ad-server trojan. I went to the mx-marketing.com website and it says;

    If you want to uninstall, you can do so easily through the add/remove function in your control panel. You can access your control panel by going to:

    1. Start (typically, the button in the bottom left of your screen)
    2. Choose SETTINGS
    3. Choose CONTROL PANEL
    4. Choose ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS
    5. Select MX-Targeting
    6. Click on ADD/REMOVE
