      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.

cpu usage 100% mstasks2.exe/computer very slow

10 posts in this topic

I had this pop-up come up a while ago on my desktop and my computer was going slow and wouldn't open anything. I've got rid of the pop-up, and most of my programs will work now, but my computer is going very slow now.

The CPU usage is at 100% and 95% and up of it is always in MSTASKS2.EXE. 'My Computer' and 'Control Panel' won't open, they freeze. When I open my Internet Explorer, the home page is 'C:\WINDOWS\secure.html' and can't be changed or deleted. When I open folders they take forever to load and usually freeze. I've read other people having a similar problem, but my Norton Antivirus is still working and scanning, it only keeps finding 'at risk' files that won't delete.

I've downloaded Hijackthis and scanned. Please help me.

Thank you. :D It took me a while to get it downloaded because the sites continuously froze, but I've downloaded it. It's scanning right now, taking a while. Am I to tell it to 'fix' all that come up? I don't want to screw anything up haha. Thanks again.

Yes, it will automatically select everything that needs fixing. All you need to do is click "Fix Selected" and reboot if it asks you to. After that post a new HijackThis log.

It finished scanning and I clicked on the button to fix them all but these things keep coming up saying that files aren't found. WDENGINE.EXE keeps coming up. I'm clicking "ok" but they keep coming back. It's been going on for about 20 minutes now.

Yes try one more time. There is an option to disable creating a system restore point. You may consider doing that.
