      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.

Need Help Plz Possible CWS not sure

3 posts in this topic

I have run hijack, adaware, spybot s&d, CWShredder and buster. CWShredder says everything is clean as does spybot. Adaware says it found CWS and says it removes it but it doesnt really. Everytime i run the buster it finds files, so something is still on the system. It changes my start page and delivers popups. I cant seem to get rid of it no matter what i do. logs below. Any help would be great.

Sometimes it needs a few runs of About:buster to kill the CWS. Please follow these directions:




Make sure you have the latest updates of Ad-aware before starting this process.




Hello, Please download this tool called About:Buster from:




Unzip it to your desktop but don't run it yet.




Now start Hijackthis and tick the boxes next to these items:


O2 - BHO: (no name) - {F84CD05B-7AC6-704D-1455-2625BA680123} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\iess.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [atlrw.exe] C:\WINDOWS\atlrw.exe

4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [ntdv32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\ntdv32.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [crpr32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\crpr32.exe


Now close ALL windows and hit fix checked.




Make sure you have printed this page and close ALL Internet Explorer windows. This is a very important step!!




Run AboutBuster.exe, click ok, then start, then OK. Make a copy of the log once it finishes. Then run aboutbuster.exe again. Make a copy of that log.




Boot into safe mode and run Ad-aware. Let it fix all that it finds.




Reboot and post a new HijackThis log along with the two reports from About:Buster.
