      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.

Help with Goored/problem with redirecting

3 posts in this topic

I previously had a few viruses, which i managed to fix. (vlob dns changer & malware doctor or something, these problems are solved)

They mainly caused my searches to be redirected constantly.


However after i got my laptop back, i noticed the vlob came back, but to fix this i logged onto my router and changed the DNS setting to automatic, which apeared to fix my re-direct problem and has prevented the virus coming back.


however! there is still a slight issue with google searches being redirected. Most searches are redirected to 'myclickcheck', which brings up faulty search sites, sometimes even sites which link to viruses. After some searching around, i found that it is still possibly malware that has 'infected' firefox or something, and the name which kept popping up was 'gooredfix', which i have download. the log from that is:

can anyone explain what to do next, if anything at all with this? alternativly, how can i stop my searches being redirected?
