      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.

WTOOLSA and WSUP

5 posts in this topic

A lot of blogs about cleaning WTOOLSA and WSUP, but nobody knows where it comes from (possibly MP3 site).

 

Some say variant of Huntbar, but footprints not the same.

 

We keep cleaning, but it keeps coming back. Don't know who is doing it at our house (kids).

 

Would really like to know how bad it is - what it is doing to me. Can anyone disassemble these progies and explain what they do?

 

I will write Congress about this one, if I could locate the originator.

 

Thanks.

 

:evilgrin:

Would you go to your start menu---->> Control Panel ----> add/remove programs. Look for Wintools and uninstall it. There may be more than one entry there so try them all if the uninstall fails

How are u removing wintools? I keep doing it in safemode and it keeps coming back.

 

I dont think your kids are putting it back on.. it just keeps coming back..

 

I cant get rid of it..

And when i unplug my network cable, it stays off.

 

The moment i plug it back in,say after 1 hour of being clean, it gets back on...

 

so i think some other adware is installing

Use the Add/Remove Programs control panel and uninstall WinTools through that. Next, use Ad-Aware with the new reference file and scan with that. Kill all that it finds.
