      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.

lost control of my webpage

5 posts in this topic

I've had my internet explorer home page changed on me. I'm no techie but with a little help here and there I've tried a lot of different ways of resetting it including going into my registry and modifying it, to trying to use hijack this and about buster after reading the instructions given here. I can get internet explorer to reset the first time but as soon as I close it and reopen it the original html#2706 is back again. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated and here is my recent logfile from hijackthis and it seems when I deleted the files I thought I should delete they just came back....thanks

The Monk cannot tell. Your probably doing something wrong, but without knowing anything about this specific adware it's not your fault. All I can say is to reread the FAQ (if you haven't already) and search for posts containing html#2706 untill an expert can check your log personally




--- oh, and if you didn't know already, The Warez Monk is no expert. The Monk has no idea what he's doing. At all :whistle:

hey, it was good advice and I tried the safe mode as an adminstrator as well as not but still no luck....I did find something that wouldn't delete though which makes me wonder what the hell it is.......oh well....I'm a lot farther along than when I started so thanks and I'll keep looking for the right advice :ugh:
