      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 am starting to get extremely aggravated :grrr: by these popup ads and my browsers being hijacked. I have run everything from Ad-aware, spybot, and hijack this. All programs are up to date, and I think I fix the problem, but boom, it appears on the next startup.

 

Here is my log from hijackthis:
