      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.

Strange things I need help with..

2 posts in this topic

Hello. I'm posting here because of something that happend to IE a few days ago. Somewhere around monday or tuesday I had what I believe was a hijack attempt on my browser. I don't remember going to any strange sites that night, but I did have my browser set on about:blank as my homepage so I wouldn't have to wait for anything to load when I opened my browser up on my god awful connection.


Anyway, I opened up Internet Explorer to find that it would start loading unusually slow -- it would just hang there, making me have to force quit it in the task manager. I got a little worried by this, so I quickly disconnected.. and that's when I got a popup bubble from Zone Alarm asking me if I wanted to allow IE to act as a server. Finding this really unusual, I clicked Deny. After doing that, IE seemed to open just fine, that is, untill I got online again. Once I got back on, it would start loading very slowly again, only this time it didn't freeze and it loaded up my about:blank homepage like it always did. There was only one problem though and that was that IE refused to load up any webpage without HTTP:// in front of the URL. It wouldn't load up another site, oh no, it just didn't DO anything at all.

Some other things that were unusual then was that My Computer would load up incredibly slow as well, and my windows search option DID NOT WORK at all.


I thought this would be a good time to finally install SpyBot S&D, seeing as how Ad-Aware (which -was- updated) didn't show anything except for About:Blank, which I deleted, and Windows "Shell ()", which I'm afraid to delete. When I updated SpyBot and ran the scan, I found something called Alexa, which I deleted, and nothing else. I also used the Immune feature that it had.

After doing that, I set IE up to use my website as my default page (since microsoft's loads to damn slow for my puny connection), and it ended up working like normal again. I could even go to sites without having to put HTTP:// in front of the url.

Now, everything might seem to be working just fine after all that.. but I can get very nervous about this type of stuff very easily, as I am not a very tech savvy person, nor do I get many problems like this, which is why I'm posting here.


I've been monitoring my Task Manager for a while now, and I've noticed that Explorer.exe and IExplore.exe have had some strange memory usage (atleast that's what most people are telling me). Explorer.exe seems to be using around 28,124k to 32,016k after a fresh restart, and IExplore.exe uses up to around 20-33,000k when first opended. I'm afraid whatever it was that tried to hijack my computer/browser, might still have some stuff still sitting around somewhere.


Here's my HijackThis log if you need it:

If you can help me with this (if I really DO have something still on my computer), I'd greatly appreciate it.

Due to the time passed and the fact that you are running an older version ...

  1. HijackThis ...
    • 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.

[*]Please post your entire log here for analysis.
