      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.

Anybody have a CWShredder or HijackThis run proble

2 posts in this topic

I recently got hit with a CWS and several Trojans at some sleazball website that I got redirected to. Upon closing my Internet Explorer and Running Spybot S&D, CWS Shredder, and HijackThis to check and clean my computer I noticed that Shredder and Hijack This took much longer to load as well as run then usual. They do run, but I suspect it is actually a clone program that has the appearance of CWShredder, just not sure. Another anomaly is that when I right click over the icons, the menu takes quite a while to appear and clicking on Properties does not always bring up the properties display, sometimes I hear three quick Window closing default sounds. (like the normal sound you have when you open Properties.

 

Hijack This revealed nothing out of the ordinary compared to my original baseline file. Spybot found nothing, and Norton was quiet as well.

 

Is there a new CWS variant that is attempts to hinder these programs? And if so, any products available to help track down the mal-code or mal-files?

Thanks for sending your HijackThis logfile. We apologize for the delay in responding. The volunteers working here are swamped, and unfortunately some requests don't get ansered in a timely manner.

 

If you still need some help with your problem, please respond to this with a fresh HijackThis log.

 

I will be notified automatically when that happens.

 

Thanks
