      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.

Homepage being changed to About:Blank

2 posts in this topic

Hi, I posted this problem on a different board, but I have been directed to this one.

My homepage keeps changing to About:Blank, and i often get pop-ups telling me my computer is infected, and I should click here to eradicate them. i do that, then get invited to spend forty dollars to remove the spyware!!!

Needless to say, I haven't parted with any cash yet!!

I have tried: Trojan Hunter, BHODemon, Ad-Aware,Spykiller,No Ad-Aware, and spybot, all have failed.

Ad-Aware finds spyware, and I remove it, but after a short while it pops up again.

Also, my computer is running slow since the infection, is this normal?

I was advised to run Hijack this, then post the results here. So here goes:
