      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.

First clean these pests off your log:


*O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sysLib] C:\WINDOWS\syslib.exe

*O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [DeInst.exe] C:\Documents and Settings\

Mel\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\



Reboot and delete the Syslib.exe Adult content related downloader trojan from windows.



Download and install : "FINDnFIX.exe" from any of

the links in my signature.


Run the "!LOG!.bat" file, wait for the final output (log.txt)
