      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.

Homepage Hijacked

4 posts in this topic

This is a sticky problem, but from the looks of it, it's become a fairly common one lately. It's been resetting my homepage to "search-to-find.com" and giving pop-ups of "Simply the Best".


Here's my log:

Fix for the Hijacker program.


I finally fixed this myself... Here is what I did.


I downloaded a task manager program (Security Task Manager) that checks everything -- every exe and every dll and every registry entry and checks them against known and safe files. Everything else is highlighted to be deleted by the user.


Using this once helped identify all of the traces of the homepage hijacker -- and you have to get them all. It's been four days and no trace of the hijacker has come back.


Many of the file names are randomly generated -- but I got rid of:











It was actually quite easy to figure what to delete by using the Secuirty Task Manager program -- the offending files had no description and were easily distinguishable from my computers legitimate drivers and programs.


Good luck!

Try Google to find it -- it's made by neuber. Or I'm sure you could use any similar program, but I found this one to work just fine.
