      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.

some CWS that just wont go away :(

8 posts in this topic

I can remove this brower hijack with Hijack this or CWS shredder, but when i reboot ( a few times) it just comes back


i'm assuming that there's another file on my pc that creates all these .dll files


in this case, its lgcab.dll

it's been all sorts of dll files in the past that i've removed (cccg.dll, cijhh.dll, ...)



here's the log

I have been experiencing the same problem, and I may have a temporary solution. Try opening regedit (Start > Run > regedit) or any other registry editor. Do a search for the name of that DLL file, and you should find it somewhere around HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Right click it, select "Modify," and simply change the location, to a DLL that doesn't exist.


If you do not delete the DLL, it shouldn't regenerate another one, and you shouldn't experience the problems by that simple registry edit. I'm not sure if it will work for you, but so far I haven't been getting any problems from it, although this is probably better left to the much more experienced helpers ;)
