    I can't write a post or comment after upgrading to Windows 8.1

    I got this update this morning, but I don't know if that's the cause

    Yes, I use chrome for now.
    It doesn't work in any IE11 browser ( Desktop and Metro version)

    The only thing I can write is a topic tittle and the search function.

    Very nice Bram, but the google commercial banners drive me crazy.
    With W8 i could post at the WMD forum and with 8.1 I can't post here.

    I know you don't have a solution for this, just see it as feedback and I reported it.

    @Tom Endres

    It works now, I added RD to the IE compatibility mode. I have no extra functions but I can write my text now.

    Really, really weird. IE is not being used by many but still, odd it only happens after the 8.1 + IE 11 update. I guess MS is going to update IE 11 to fix many other problems too. :)

    Hey Peter,

    Not sure what you have installed inside your browser but those ads aren't from RD. How do they end up there?

    You should do a mallware scan as that looks like an infected computer to me.

    Google: spybot search & destroy

    Launch RD on the desktop browser and open compatible mode in the options and ad this side to it.

    I checked and it's spyware that came with chrome. I'm now back to W8 with the tablet, until MS fixes the problems.

    It does not come with Chrome. I only use Chrome, and I've never seen those banners in my life.

    Time for a cleanup, as others have stated.

    Indeed, I don't see anything like it in Chrome either.
