      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.

Almost got rid of a cws hijack

2 posts in this topic

a few days ago i caught the "ms-search" hijacker. i immediately ran adAware (found 9 items) and followed that with spybotSD. then i went thru the registry wiping out all obvious keys/values and i am also running ie-spyad . all is fine now ...except for one weird thing. when i type an address/url in the addres bar of ie6 sp1, the full url takes me to the site i want immediately with no probs, however if i type a short url eg: spyware.com, that request gets hijacked by the ms-search monster and wont let me out, but it makes no home pages now or does anything malicious. i want to get rid of it because i dont want crap runnin around in my computer. here is a sample if hijack this. i am willing to format but would like to avoid it if i can...aloha
