      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.

removing prosearching hijacker

2 posts in this topic

This takes over home page, adds a tool bar w/ typical, gambling, porn, adult links.

have used spyhunter(was quickly disabled), cwshredder(orginally prevented from running, then I used the a program to allow it to run), ad-aware(which does not pick up on this prosearching), and finally webroot's spy hunter. Also, I think it prevents Norton from running properly. Today I ran ad-aware, and webroot's spy hunter(for the first time) before running Hijackthis. After rebooting, home page is correct, but spy hunter notifies me that prosearching is trying to take over my home page. Previously, I thought I had removed this but it keeps comming back and also disables Pop-up stopper. I want to make sure it is removed permanately. Do you think weatherbug allows these problems to come in? Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7
