      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.

Another CWS victim

4 posts in this topic

It's been 4 days of trying to remove CWS. I've followed a few of the other posts and the fixes offered have not worked for me! I'm running spysweeper, spybot S&D and adaware. All of them are current on apps and defs. Adaware detects the cws and removes but it keeps coming back. I had spyhunter loaded but from what I've read it loads spyware.


I will reboot and wait for a response! I have HJT logs but what I've seen posted the log files are no good after you've rebooted with the CWS spyware. Thanks for forum. And like everyone else I will grovel and beg for your assistence! Terry

Hello thoneter,

I may not be a great assistance yet but I can help with your CWS problem. Download CWShredder from this page, extract it, and run it. It should kill all forms of the CWS virus. After this is done post a HJT log and wait for a helper to come assist.

Thanks for trying! I've already ran shredder and it found nothing to remove. I'd already ran adaware, spybot and spysweeper b4 I ran shredder. This CWS is a persistent little bugger! TT
