      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.

Extremely Evil Hijack

6 posts in this topic

I am a first time poster...I have been running Hijckthis and ad-aware6 for months successfully.

Yesterday, I got hijacked and have tried everything to get rid of it but cannot.

I ran Hijackthis and ad-aware and followed all the instruction in the FAQ, even looked for *hta, *.js files, deleted tmp files and examined the registry, but when I restart, the hijack is back. It takes my browser to:

res://mshp.dll/index.html#44272 (Home Search)..another strange aspect is when I serch Google for 'hijack browser', and click into the SpywareInfo link, I get taken to http://www.search-what.net/top/go.php?qq=forums. Very frustrating.


Here is my log:
