      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.

This is my first post. For 24 hours I have been trying to clean my computer. I successfully used Ad Aware, Spy Nuker and CW Shredder. Now when I run any program they say my computer is clean.


But, my computer runs very slowly. Often I cannot move from link to link. The page says: "The program is not responding."


Some basic links even are not responding well (e.g. Yahoo) I cannot download 'Dreamweaver'.


When I click IE on the START Menu, a strange search page still appears.


And so, I think my computer is suspect, even though the Spy Removal Programs say that my computer is clean.


I am posting my log from 'Hijack This' in the hopes that one of you (my new friends) will recognize something.


And so:

Are any of them suspect? Which ones should I Fix? (Delete)

Thank you in advance.

I am just being patient. In the meanwhile, I am reading all the other logs with similar problems. But maybe someone has the vision to spot something.

I am about to take drastic action and begin to prune my registry. But first I want to run it by the pros.


When I check my home page, a strange URL appears: It says:



I did a file search for afwxk, found 1 file, turned off System Restore and deleted it. But it came back.


Then I ran 'Hijack This' again. I saw in the suspicious afwxk five times in the registry.


Should I prune (FIX) all of them? Will my computer still work afterwards.

I am answering myself.


Well, I pruned them all. At first they seemed to disappear and all was well. But later when I checked, the home page was still hijacked with the afwxk etc. URL.


What do I do?


I ran Spybot again. Found another 5 bad things. (DOS Exploit). Deleted them.


Are the word that are running at the bottom of the page when I run Spybot, on MY computer?? Because a lot of bad words are there. (Like Cool Web Search,). Or are the words just trying to run a match on my computer against these words?


The reason I want to know is because if all the words that I spotted on the bottom of the page when Spybot was running are, in fact, on my computer, then it is seriously infected and all the Spyware is not identifying it.
