      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.

Random Pop-ups

6 posts in this topic

I've been here several times and you guys have all been such a great help. I'm usually pretty good about what I click on and where; however, I believe something has got me. I've run both Spybot S&D, Ad-aware, and CW Shredder. I'm still getting random pop-ups. This started yesterday afternoon. I was doing a search for some things and ran into a site somewhere along the line with a pile of pop-ups. I thought I appropriately got myself out of there; however, much to my dismay, I now have these pop-ups. Okay, enough rambling and here's my log . . .

Hi,

Create a folder via Windows Explorer for HijackThis, then move the file (HijackThis.exe) to that folder. This way any backups created are saved in a legit folder.

 

1) Restart in Safe Mode (see "How To:" below)

2) Enable Hidden Files (see "How To:" below)

 

Locate and delete the following:

 

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\HFXFZF.EXE <--this file

C:\PROGRAM FILES\MYWEBSEARCH <--this folder

C:\Program Files\ClockSync <--this folder

 

While still in Safe Mode:

Close all open windows, rescan with HijackThis and "Fix checked" the following:

I've been here several times and ...

Doesn't that tell you something?

. . .

Funny!

 

Though, I must inform you, this does happen to be the first time I've been here for my own problems. I've been around serveral times as my boss seems to get his computer into many "situations." Thanks to the awesome help I've received here on all those occasions, he's been problem free for about a month.

 

Thanks again for the help!

Hi,

as my boss seems to get his computer into many "situations."

Then get him some "Defense", then hit him up for a raise! {$$$$$}
