      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.

about:blank refuses to go away

2 posts in this topic

Ok, I've done everything I can think of to get rid of this spyware, and it still won't go away!! I've run CWShredder multiple times, restarting after each try, and that only seems to temporarily fix it. I've run totally updated versions of AdAware, which always seems to find a few problems, and it's not helping either. If it helps, everytime that I've run CWShredder, it always finds exactly six items. Each time that the about:blank homepage problem starts up and I run CWShredder, it will always find six items. Always. Not sure if that helps at all or not. Anyway, here's my HijackThis log. I hope somebody can decode this enough to help me out!! Thanks in advance.

To fix About:Blank problems:

  1. Please download About:Buster from one of the following locations:

[*]Please close all windows.

[*]Unzip AboutBuster.zip and doubleclick the exe.

[*]Next click ok and allow the program to run. (it may take a few minutes)

[*]Make a copy of the log it creates for posting later.

[*]Then run the About:Buster a second time just to be sure it got everything.

[*]Make a copy of the log it creates again.

[*]Reboot and post the 2 about buster logs and a fresh HijackThis log.
