      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 on 98SE

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

My windows 98SE has been overtaken by the pesky "about:blank" files.

I have read many posts and followed the manual instructions posted by Bob0 (in the Pinned topics at the top - http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?showtopic=10746&hl=), but I do not seem to have a "Windows Procedure" Hook Type in my System Information (other than the one associated with ).

 

AdAware 6.0 has been used. Any suggestions would be appreciated...

 

Here is my HijackThis log file:
