      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.

I have gone through the steps to remove the spyware off my system using spybot and hijackthis, also by searching for the .hta and .js files, but can't seem to remove the spyware for good. I have read some other forums on how to remove this from windows XP Pro, but would like clarification from someone more well informed than myself to get the right procedure down. Everytime I reboot the same files I fixed reappear in the Hijackthis log. IE goes to an about: blank site and I don't know where to find this file or where to find the startup file that reloads the spyware when I reboot. Here is my Highjackthis log and I would appreciate any help I can get.

Due to the time passed ...

  1. HijackThis ... (Download again as you are running an older version)
    • Double click on "My Computer" to open it.
    • Double click on the local "C-Drive" to open it.
    • Click on "File" => "New Folder" and name it HJT. i.e. The folder will be C:\HJT.
    • Please download HijackThis from any of the following locations:

[*]Install/Unzip it into C:\HJT.

[*]Only run HijackThis from C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe. That way we can ensure that we have the backup files available in the event that they are needed.

[*]Run HijackThis, click on scan and wait for the scan to finish.

[*]The "Scan" button will change to "Save Log", click on it and simply press "Save" on the window that will appear.

[*]Notepad will open with a copy of the log.

  • Click on "Edit" => "Select All".
  • Click on "Edit" => "Copy". This will copy the contents of the Notepad instance to the clipboard.
