Resetting IE's or laptop's location

Postby Forest » Sun Aug 15, 2010 7:50 pm

Anyone know how i re set my Internet explorer's web location?

because i used to go on ufc.com but when i watched a video from it, it transfered me to uk.ufc.com and now diverts me to there every time. assume because it knows im from the uk now i clicked the vid.

the main one is alot better and got tons more info so wondering if anyone knows how i can stop it diverting me to the uk site?

Oh dear! IE is a dinosaur.

Chrome or Firefox score the points these days....

(Sounds like you have been hijacked, which won't happen with newer applications)

Well, most places target IE because the majority use it. (Pillocks)

If you are being diverted, you've been done.

Download and run malwarebytes. (I'll PM you the link if you can't find it)

If it's in a red box, it'll be fine. Malwarebytes Anti Malware.

Download it for free, run it, and it'll rid any system of any crap. It's worked for everyone I know.

But also download either Firefox or Chrome as a browser, and bin IE, you are far safer, and more things these days are designed and written in the newer and better browsers.

Hijacked?

Lols is that what you dinosaurs call it? :grin:

It left a cookie there...Websites do know your country of origin, it has nothing to do with the browser, but IE is some shit, Chrome is fast, but Firefox is the best overall and has mammoth security and a ton of useful add-ons.
