      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.

homepage hijacked by topotun (also CoolWebSearch)

2 posts in this topic



(I read the FAQ page)

My default homepage keeps being changed to topotun.com/index.htm. I used many programs, including ad-aware, spywareblaster, spyware doctor, bazooka, and finally spysweeper. None worked. In each case, I removed/fixed all the detected sofwares, but the topotun adware didn't go!


On "Registry Editor", I searched for "topotun" and modified all the results found, from "topotun.com" to "google.com". However, my modifications worked only for the first time I opened a new IE (Version 6.0) window. The second time I opened a new IE window, my homepage was "topotun.com/index.htm" again! I tried this many times. (I observed this phenomenon with "spysweeper", too. I remove all the problems detected. But then, one minute after I open a new IE window, spysweeper gives an alert saying that it has just detected 'changes in IE's default pages' and 'home page', and 'additions to my IE Favorites'.)


Also, I should add that the address bar of Internet Explorer _usually_ reads "about:blank" when the page is on "topotun.com".


The other problem is: The ad-aware also detects "CoolWebSearch" objects, which also reappear no matter how many times I delete them. However, I think that "topotun" overrules the "CoolWebSearch" -or sth like that- because my homepage is always "topotun".


Any help is welcome. And thanks for the job you are doing there.
