      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.

Can't get my desktop back

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

Had this problem a while. There is an ad overlaying my desktop, it used to have links to a website selling software which removes web tracks. I deleted the pictures which were there, but there still is some sort of background covering my desktop. Properties says it is an html document.

 

Originally there was an about:blank problem and a link placed in my favorite places as well, but these problems have not come back.

 

Recently ad aware says I'm clean, spybot can't clean a "dso exploit" which keeps coming back. Otherwise my computer is running normally, but when I boot I know something is going on still. I also ran cw shredder and it says I'm clean.

 

Also paid for spysweeper, but still the desktop problem.

 

Here is my highjack log: my untrained eye sees no problems here...any ideas are greatly appreciated!!

Ok, do you have anything disabled in MSCONFIG? If you do can you please re-enable EVERYTHING and post a new hijackthis log.. when things are disabled we can't see stuff that is there.

 

Also, the DSO exploits are a glitch.. it's being worked on, just ignore them.
