First of all, this is my first post here, so i might not be so familiar with what is considered proper behavior here. I just wanted to ask if anybody managed to solved this problem yet? I'm having trouble with those same issues, and i've scanned the hole piece of c*ap with dozens of virus & malware scanners and haven't got any solutions. Some minor spyware was found (flyswat, zlob-trojan, etc.) which have been all removed. Still the same symptoms remain. I would definitely like to get this thing working already. I'm running on Win 2k sp1. I did an emergency install after the problems started, with no effect. Now I can't install any updates or service packs. I found out that copy/pasting work with some programs (paint, notepad), but the most essential programs won't do it. Please don't make me "copy/paste" any of those monster-urls. It takes ages to type it into the address bar. Thanks in advance, and sorry for possible mistakes in my spelling (yes, i'm a foreigner).
