      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.

Death to WebSearch.com!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8 posts in this topic

On my computer the default search page has been switched to WebSearch.com and even If I change it it still goes back. Ad-Aware failed to remove it. HijackThis showed me some registry keys that preitaned to it and I got rid of those, however when I restarted they came back. I am at a loss. my Hijackthis log is posted below.

Plz help.

I would remove all of the R0 and R1 entries--they affect searching and looking at some of the names, they can all go (in my opinion).


Be sure IE is closed when doing this.


Then run Ad-Aware, Spybot 1.3 after getting latest updates, then post your hijackthis log again.

I also had problems with Websearch.com. I kept removing the R0 and R1 entries in Hijackthis but the problem kept returning. I found I needed to remove the Wintools folder from under C:Program Files\Common Files\Wintools. I had to do this from safe mode and I had to remove the read only flags and hidden flags. Once I did this all my fixes in Hijackthis remained permanent.


Hope this helps.
