      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.

Intermitent Hijack - Can't find any info

7 posts in this topic

Currently I am getting an intermitent hijack to http://2awm.com/file/indigo.html. It doesn't actually bring up a webpage usually, however sometimes it redirects to various sex sites.


This has been going on for about 2 days and just today I started getting dummy application popups asking me to install popup blockers - I forget the name, something commander.


Also just now an icon was installed on my desktop called 'Best Online Casinos' that points to http://www.casinopalazzo.com/index.php?sourceid=102174


Here is a current HijackThis log.

SpyBot S&D has been run several times with the latest update and fails to fix this problem.


I have done some searching and found some references to the 2awm.com domain however, it is always for a different web address and hijack this always has an 016 entry with the address - no such luck here.

I keet reading the log and I found the mess.exe entry and the taskngr.exe. I will get rid of those and see what happens.


Are there any other entries in that log that look troubling?


P.S. While typing this I got a message asking me to install PopUp Commander. This is the thing I mentioned above.

I was able to completely get rid of my problems so if you post your HiJack This log I will take a look at it and see what you still haven't removed.
