      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.

Please Help, CWS hijack

2 posts in this topic



Relatively new to the forum, but I have tried to follow the early directions before posting. Basic problem seems to be invasion by CoolWebSearch malware. I usually run Ad-aware6.0, Spybot, Regvac, and Bazooka regularly. CWS slipped in, causing my browser to no longer recognize URLs without typing the www.


I've run Ad-aware numerous times, it finds a different version of CWS each time, kills it off, only to have another version back on my computer in a matter of moments. I ran CWS shredder and my system comes up clean each time. I also tried TrojanHunter, which found some items, but still couldn't kill of CWS.


Here's my latest Hijackthis log:
