      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.

  1. Hi Lucy Hope you had a good weekend. Is it still running all right? RAM might do it for you.....however, I don't know all your specs, like how many slots, how much it can hold, etc.....
  2. Hi Lucy, You're welcome. Let's see if this helps : None of these are being deleted, and you can start them at any time. They're just being stopped from running all the time. Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following, making sure you get them all and not any others by mistake: O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe Reader Speed Launcher] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\Reader_sl.exe" O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe ARM] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe" O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NeroLauncher] C:\Program Files (x86)\Nero\SyncUP\NeroLauncher.exe 900 O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RoxWatchTray] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\OEM\12.0\SharedCOM\RoxWatchTray12OEM.exe" O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Desktop Disc Tool] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Roxio\OEM\Roxio Burn\RoxioBurnLauncher.exe" O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Default Manager] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack\Default Manager\DefMgr.exe" -resume O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [APSDaemon] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\APSDaemon.exe" O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTTask.exe" -atboottime O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [iTunesHelper] "C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes\iTunesHelper.exe" Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis. Reboot your computer and see how that makes it run. tea
  3. Hello, How is it running today? Let's go a bit "old school" for a bit : Please download HiJackThis from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/hijackthis/ Choose the .exe version. If you don't use that one, then be sure and follow the directions for extraction : To use HijackThis, download the file and extract it to a directory on your hard drive called c:\HijackThis. Then navigate to that directory and double-click on the hijackthis.exe file. When the program is started click on the Scan button and then the Save Log button to create a log of your information. Post the log in your reply, please. Do NOT fix anything until I have a look at it and get back to you. It only takes a minute once I have it. tea
  4. Hi Lucy Welcome to SWI ! Don't be afraid to post if you have concerns....it's better to be safe than sorry, right? You do have a lot running at once and one questionable program that I'm willing to bet you didn't intentionally install. If you didn't install Ask, then please click Start (Your little Windows button at far left bottom), choose Computer, and then click on Programs and Features. Uninstall anything by Ask. Then navigate to C:\Program Files (x86) and delete the folder Ask.com Reboot your computer. If you'd like to eliminate some of your unnecessary startups, please do let me know and I'll help you with it, if you like. Thanks, tea
  5. Going to close this duplicate topic as well, to avoid confusion.
  6. closing this for you. and not a problem.
  7. Due to the lack of feedback this Topic is closed. If you need this topic reopened, please tell the moderating team by replying here with the address of the thread. This applies only to the original topic starter. Everyone else please begin a New Topic.
  8. You're welcome. This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix. * Ensure you have disabled all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. You MUST uninstall AVG for this. You'll be taken offline for the run, so you won't be in any danger without it. 1. Download this file - combofix.exe http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe 2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts. 3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please. Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall. If you have trouble running it the first time, then rename ComboFix.exe to firebird.exe and try again. Thanks, tea
  9. Hello 1firebirdbabe, Welcome to SWI The HijackThis log you posted is incomplete. When you post one in its entirety I'll be more than happy to help you. I'd also like to see a DDS log, please, which will give me an even better look at what's going on. Thanks, tea

  11. There are lots of articles out there that explain how the various infections work. Here is one : http://www.malware-analysis.net/?p=236 Old Java is very vulnerable, and that's why we always suggest keeping it updated and old versions uninstalled. But many come in in temp files, just like a cookie might, some droppers are placed on the desktop long enough to leave their little package and then delete themselves! The list of "ways" is very long. ARRRRRGH Matey! NO program can stop everything out there. This free program stops as much as an expensive program will. Always remember though, NO program will stop what you tell it to let in. I did a test one time and told my AV to let me download a really cute puppydog screensaver, and ended up having to reset my tester because the files that thing dropped were SO nasty. This depends on your OS. If you run anything under Vista, then yes, you need a 3rd party firewall. Vista and Windows 7 have both inbound and outbound protection and are much better than the earlier OS versions. Since you mention a HOSTS file I have to assume you run XP? Windows 7 does not have a HOSTS file. When it comes to malware, there are never any exact answers. It is constantly changing and we are constantly learning how to battle it. I hope this helped just a little.
  12. Hi zak's In your control panel, and your folder options, you have to unhide everything. This should give you back the majority of what you're missing : http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/unhide.exe . There may be a few things you need to unhide yourself after, but not much. After that, I'd like to see a DDS log, and the MBAM report, if you still have it, please. Thanks, tea
  13. It's been almost 4 years since the following posts were made in the public Boot Camp thread, and I STILL wish I knew the who, what, and why of it. http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?/topic/34-the-boot-camp-here/page__view__findpost__p__573369
  14. No, looks pretty clean to me....hehehe...even your Java is up to date. Between the logs and your current description I don't see any reason to dig any further. If you're happy, then I'm happy. tea
  15. Are you still getting the random restarts?
