      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 browser hijack

2 posts in this topic

When I start a broswer session, its address field points to "about blank". However, it displays a search engine page where I don't know what the actual address is. If I then type in an address, say "www.yahoo.com", the browser goes to that page but the "back" button is grayed out so that I can navigate back to the start up search engine page.

 

I use Ad-aware and remove serveral offending objects, but the next time I launch a browser session the symptotm appears again.

 

I also use CWShredder to remove the virus. It indicates it has removed the CW.Searchx virus. The next few times I start a browser session I see a blank page rather than the search engine page. However, after awhile the problem comes back, especially after I restart the computer.

 

I run HiJackThis to scan my pc and here's the log. I would appreciate someone take a look at it. Thanks.
