      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.

The above web address has taken over my homepage and I cannot remove it. The problem also prevents me accessing certain web pages including some of the links suggested on this site. I am not experienced in these matters and would appreciate any help. Frustration does not adequately describe my feelings. Thank you.

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

[*]Boot into safe mode. How do I boot into "Safe" mode?

[*]Unzip the downloaded about:buster program to your desktop.

[*]Double click it and hit "Ok".

[*]Click "Start".

[*]Select "Ok" to start the scan.

[*]The scan should take a few seconds.

[*]Once it is done save the report.

[*]Reboot and sign in as you normally do and repeat the procedure for running about:buster.

[*]Post the results of the report and a fresh HijackThis log for review.

For HijackThis, hopefully it will download okay after rebooting:

  • Double click on "My Computer" to open it.
  • Double click on the local "C-Drive" to open it.
  • Click on "File" => "New Folder" and name it HJT. i.e. The folder will be C:\HJT.
  • Please download HijackThis from any of the following locations:

    [*]Install/Unzip it into C:\HJT.

    [*]Only run HijackThis from C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe. That way we can ensure that we have the backup files available in the event that they are needed.

    [*]Run HijackThis, click on scan and wait for the scan to finish.

    [*]The "Scan" button will change to "Save Log", click on it and simply press "Save" on the window that will appear.

    [*]Notepad will open with a copy of the log.

    • Click on "Edit" => "Select All".
    • Click on "Edit" => "Copy". This will copy the contents of the Notepad instance to the clipboard.

    [*]Please post your entire log here for analysis.
