      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.

search assistant/blazefind, and more...

6 posts in this topic

Here are the problems: Spy Sweeper comes up often with "IEPlugin", "Twain-Tech", and "vx2 (Transponder)" as some adware. I remove them, but they keep coming back. I want them gone for good. All 3 programs were found during the registry scan.

 

I've had alot of other adware removed that hasn't seemed to come back.

 

One of the adware (or whateverware its called) that I removed, and it hasn't shown up during a scan again is "BlazeFind", however, when I start windows (xp) a search bar called "Search Assistant" (from what I can tell) shows up, and a search from there goes to a BlazeFind website (i did a test search).

 

There was a thing called "HP View", and that's probably a Hewlett-Packard thing that came with my computer that was stuck in an Internet Explorer menu, that I could never get rid of for good, until now. Thanks to Hijack This. Which brings me to another problem I'm having, and I don't know if its caused by spyware or anything like that. My Internet Explorer menus wont stay where I put them. They'll stay until I log off or restart. Then the links menu goes back, and the text on buttons comes back, and all the menus are on different lines again. Is this because of some kind of whateverware program, or something else?

 

Everyone seems to be asked to pose their Hijack This log, so here it is...

Some stuff, like the Google Toolbar were installed by me, but some of it may be obvious spyware. What should I do to get rid of it? I deleted a bunch of that R1 search stuff, because a search from the address bar went to whatever that webiste, but all those things came back. Hmm.

 

Help please :(.
