      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Searchx problem

4 posts in this topic

There's something that keeps hijacking my homepage. It sends me to an about:blank search page. I tried deleting it by running Ad-Aware, Spybot, CWShredder, and hijackthis but I've had no success. It gets removed for a little bit, but it comes back eventually, sometimes an hour later, sometimes 5 minutes later. Any help on getting rid of this would be greatly appreciated!

 

Here's my hijack-this logfile:
