      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.

about.blank hijacked me

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I am thankful to have found this place. I have read the FAQ, followed instructions carefully, including downloading, updating, and running Spybot and Adaware.

 

Adaware seems to reset my browser to MSN, but when computer is rebooted, about.blank is back.

 

I want to get rid of it, completely get it off my computer. I will be grateful for help doing that.

 

I am posting below the scan log from Hijackthis.

 

(Should note that the one instruction I didn't obey was to re-enable software previously turned off in MsConfig. My computer will not boot if all that stuff is turned on. There isn't enough RAM to accomodate all the programs. But think there is nothing that I recently turned off, think all dates back to well before this problem started.)
