Not sure I follow you...

You select something, then place the cursor where you want, and hit control V (paste)

copy is automatic.

I had similar trouble with FireFox, when first working with it. While uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing, finding the necessary plug-in's to see the content of many web sites, while surfing with FireFox, did the trick.

drew2815,

You can post a HijackThis log in the Malware Removal Forum.
http://www.geekstogo...o_Here-f37.html

I would first recommend that that you read through this first and do the preliminary steps.

drew2815,
I looked at your HJT log and it looks good.
Nothing showing in the HOSTS file or O15 entries.

Have you looked at your HOSTS file entries?

Here is a couple of threads that may clear things up.

Ok, I cant get rid of that stupid sitefinder.verisign so i will just forget about it. I am using the latest version of Firefox, 1.02. Why cant i get on some SAFE websites. I know why i cant get on some other sites, because there bad. But i cant access www.dogpile.com, the search engine, i always thought that was clean, and when i go to www.msn.com and then click on messenger, i cant access that either and i have no clue why because i thought they were safe. Please help me get a better understanding of this.

I have firefox and dogpile.com works just fine.

Are you getting an error message when typing in "www.dogpile.com"? If so, what is the error message (exactly)?
