Site access

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Are any users experiencing problems accessing the arrse site using internet explorer. Everytime I access the site internet explorer crashes out. This happens on two separate systems. So far it seems quite stable using firefox
    (fingers crossed). I'm not a computer geek so I do not know if it is anything to do with my internet provider or I've inadvertently downloaded a virus from a porn site :lol: , but the latter is not applicable to the other computer.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
     
  2. I'm not getting IE binning out, i've tried with a couple of different versions and it isnt happening.

    Is anyone else being offered what appears to be a quicktime script being offered to run when they log into the site. Its the first time arrse has tried to install script, unless the problem is coming from elsewhere.

  3. I am managing to get through a couple of pages. If I open a link the whole lot crashes taking all the other open windows with it

    Flashes an error sign just before it happens

    I'm using a completely fresh windows xp install (new yesterday and all updates on) with ie6 and I have no issues at all - I've also been using the site on other machines and other browsers without problem ( including linux and also using firefox and epiphany )

    I can assure you we've done nothing to provoke any pop-ups, cause crashes etc. If not already done I would suggest a system clean with spybot ( http://www.safer-networking.org/ ) and ad aware ( http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ ). Both free.

    A virus scan might be a good idea too - excellent free one here: http://free.grisoft.com/

    Finally, a windows dig out with registry mechanic (trial is free but doesn't cure all ills): http://www.pctools.com/registry-mechanic/
     
  5. Had another look at the script notification i was getting. If anyone else gets them, they are safe and appear to be installed by Quicktime/Itunes software to look for media content in websites. The notification gives the impression that arrse is attempting to install the activex control, it isnt.
