      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.

WToolsA

5 posts in this topic

I seem to be infected with the WToolsA.exe program. The questions I have are:

1. Was this program written by the wintools company that I found on a google search. They are at wintools.net.

2. What exactly does this program do besides slow down my computer. It uses anywhere from 2% to 85% of my CPU usage.

Thanks for any help!

I think the two are separate. Wintools (if it's who I'm thinking about) is a legit company.

 

I'm moving this to the spywatch forum.

WinTools is indeed a legitimate company.

 

The version of Wintools you're talking about appears to be a bastardized version of Huntbar that's been made a heckuva lot harder to remove. Don't know if Ad-Aware and SS&D handle it yet.
