      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.

i have a hidden about blank variant - need help

4 posts in this topic

Please help.

I have an variant of about blank that I can't shake. I have used adaware, spy bot, norton's, spy sweeper, and have removed the msft java and replaced with sun java. I ran hjt and removed about blank from the R1 to no avail. This thing is hidden and reboots every time i go back to the internet. It also has a few pop-ups for spyware programs. I would love to find out who they are and send them a letter or send one to the FCC.

The following is my recent hjt log file. I posted yesterday but in reviewing my post it looks like the hjt log file was truncated. Thanks, Yuri

First, disable any and all active protection you currently have running, including but not limited to:

-Ad-Aware/AdWatch, SpySweeper and in particular 7~engines Nortonware!

They are not able to fix the problem, only 'hide' it and as a result--interfere!

 

Next, Download and install : "FINDnFIX.exe" from any of

the links in my signature.

 

Run the "!LOG!.bat" file, wait for the final output (log.txt)

post the results....

how do you disable these programs? i only know how to download them to make them work. btw i think i used the panda program to rid my system of the about blank problem, but there are onther things showing up in the adaware search. i hope you will be able to help me with those after I get the antivirus turned off. i have antivir guard also so i'll need to know how to disable it.

much thanks,

yuri
