      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.

Persistent IE Homepage Hijacker

4 posts in this topic

I have been working on trying to remove this Homepage Hijacker for a few days now. I have tried just about every method that I have been able to find in this forum. I was only able to temporarily remove the spyware, but it keeps coming back as soon as I close and reopen Internet Explorer. The dll name has changed at least a half a dozen times, but the result is the same in the end. It just keeps coming back. Here is my Hijack This and About:Buster logs below. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Make sure you have the latest version of AboutBuster and have you tried running it in safe mode?

Ok, I downloaded the updated version of About:Buster, and HSremove. I rebooted in safe mode and ran Hijack This and cleaned the entries. Then I ran About:Buster and Hsremove respectively. While still in safe mode it seemed like Internet Explorer was back to normal. Upon reboot back into normal mode IE was still ok for about 2 opens and closes. However, when I opened it the third time it was back again. Unfortunately, I am still hijacked, any ideas.

Post a fresh HJT log and don't reboot or shut down your computer until I get back to you. MrC
