      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.

FIREFOX and now Opera REDIRECTING to other sites

4 posts in this topic

When searching via google I am being redirected to other nonsense bogus sites. I'm a noob so please go easy on me. Thanks in advance. Can anyone direct me to the next step. Most appreciated!!! Adaware was installed and it did remove a couple of items - however I can not copy this to this post. I have had results with MBAM as well which is obvious with the report below. At this point I am a bit lost and the browser still has a mind of its own.

I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.


Print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.


Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here.


Uninstall any CD emulation software before you run GMER, such as DAEMON Tools or Alcohol. These can be reinstalled later.

  • Extract the contents of the zipped file to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on GMER.exe to run it.
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run a full scan, click NO, and then use the following settings.
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are UNCHECKED:
    • Sections
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than your Systemdrive (the drive you have Windows installed on)
    • Show All (don't miss unchecking this one)

    [*]Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.

    [*]When its finished, click on the Save button, and in the File name area, type in "gmer.txt".

    [*]Save it to a convenient location such as your Desktop and post the contents of the log.



Please run this security check for my review.


Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
