Not sure what I've done to make it happen

I recently come back to Isboxer having a 2/3yr break I was never a pro but got the hang of it. Well, I'm back and I decided to play 3 B-dks I leveled them from 110-120 just fine no issues now I'm 120 I recently had to get new Ram 8gb was not enough I went with 16GB 3000mhz. I decided to delete all my settings in Isboxer start fresh run the quick wizard set interact with NPC to G just like the video shows also made a macro for Ground AoE, Everything works fine just when I enter combat while mounted if I use path of frost my dudes will go attack and trying to get them to ignore the mobs and follow me using Alt F they just stay there and fight. The Alt F works out of combat just not in combat also my main guy I'm controlling trys to pull towards the mobs if I attack. not sure what causes this problem hope someone can understand me and can help me out.

Re: Not sure what I've done to make it happen

Are you sure the ALT+F is not working? Are you pressing anything afterwards? Is there some message which is appearing on the slaves at the time ?

Some of what you describe sounds like you selected the Auto Interact With Target option. The Follow stuff almost sounds like PvP behaviour. It's a bit of a mixmash, and possibly needs to be broken down.

First would be a use a clean profile (File -> Save As, followed by a File -> Clear), and see if you get the same behaviour with a new setup, paying attention not to select the Auto Interact option on the final page of the Wizard.

Re: Not sure what I've done to make it happen

I was being attacked by alliance guards at the time but my WM was off. I think I may have played with the auto interact. I check that out. alt F is working and no error just acting weird like they face away from the enemy when fighting having to turn on repeater to break out of it and then press G to assist me again.

I'm also wondering I have bind key maps to Combat Broadcast Hotkeys all my Shift1-9 Ctrl 1-9 combat abilities for movement speed, interrupts and stuns etc. it feels is I press them my guys act weird like path of frost they go and attack when I don't want them to.

Follow breaks in all PvP combat—War Mode enabled or not—and fighting faction guards is considered PvP combat.

It sounds as if you've opted to use Auto-Interact with Target, which includes IWT into Combat Broadcast. You can adjust this setting on the "Virtual Mapped Keys" tab of your Character Set, under the "Auto-Interact with Target" entry. This is also covered in the Post-Wizard Setup video.

I was just riding through the guards as being tank I don’t get knocked off my mount so easy but that makes sense now why they just stopped following. I will make a clean install and let you know if I still experience any more of that. Thx

A clean install of what? Neither reinstalling ISBoxer or WoW will fix follow while engaged in PvP combat, as it's a mechanic built into the game since the release of Battle for Azeroth.

My bad I meant, Run a new quick wizard setup deleting my old one. I have checked the virtual mapped keys, Auto-Interact with Target - Active Method in ISB42 - Party Key Map is set to > Interact with Target - Standard in ISB42 - Party Key Map < So I am guessing where I bind abilities like Path of frost in the Combat Broadcast Hotkeys that's telling my dudes to attack. I'm not on about PvP at this point I know that it breaks follow. If I bind keys like Mount up, Path of frost, Death advance my dudes will engage with the target that is attacking them when I am mounted when I'm just trying run through them to get to another world quest.

Re: Not sure what I've done to make it happen

Usually, by default, the Auto Interact With Target virtual mapping is set to <NO MAPPED KEY> in <NO KEYMAP>. I.e. it is not bound, so when you press hotkeys for that standard Combat Broadcast Hotkeys, it does NOT auto interact.

The behaviour you are describing in all your posts stems from your selection of the Auto Interact With Target option on the final page of the Quick Setup Wizard. This option is NOT ticked by default. You are choosing it, and thus you are getting the behaviour from choosing to use it. If you don't like the behaviour, don't choose the option.

The follow breaking may also be part of this, but as MiRai said, if you enagage in combat with PvP units (including other faction units), then regardless of your War Mode setting, it is still considered PvP (even the NPC PvP), and thus the rules of BFA come into play, where Follow does not work in PvP.
