      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.

Have tried several posts on spywareinfo.com, and have

gotten no! replies. This sucks. I have used:

Aluria's spyware eliminator

Pest Patrol

Spybot search and destroy 1.2

Ad-aware 6.0


Reg Mechanic


None of these programs have helped. I am constantly

finding new reg keys, spyware progs and the like, but the

problem is on-going.


This is my main symptom. Randomly, IE windows, full

windows, will open with advertisements ranging from anti-

0spyware progs to singles site. These occur whether or

not I am browsing the internet, and often occur 3-4 times

at once.


I am on a cable broadband connection, and am using McAfee

virusscan 7 and firewall 4.


I need some help here. Either I eliminate the problem, or

re-format the C: drive.


Any and all help appreciated.


Much love!

Hi PGPhantom, Just adding some directions in case needed -


Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe

Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".


When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.

Press that, save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
