      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.

I can't get rid of About:blank! Help!

2 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone!

I certainly hope someone can help me with this problem. I got hijacked by a trojan which had taken over my homepage and was also providing lots of pop-ups. My startpage would change to about:blank. I downloaded and have ran CWShredder several times. I thought my problem was solved and my homepage stayed set to my desired homepage, but then the about:blank page and pop-ups returned. I can run CWShredder again and have the system completely clean and my homepage will work correctly and the pop-ups will stay gone again for awhile then out of the blue the about:blank page and pop-ups take over again. Can anyone tell me how to rid my system of this annoying problem for good???
