      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.

Extremely severe Malware!!! can't remove it

2 posts in this topic

I'm trying to fix someone's computer which is infected with a really severe malware, I really don't know what it is since I when I try to run Hijackthis, it runs for like 2 seconds and closes all the time. Not only that, let's say I wanted to go download Hijackthis off a website, internet explorer will close, and even mozilla firefox will do the same.

 

When I run the AVG setup, it closes after like 2 seconds I executed it. It' weird because I installed AVG for this person and it just dissapeared ever since it got infected.

 

I tried to run the trendmicro online scan, same story, as soon as I get there IE closes by itself. I tried running the AVG setup in safe mode, same story, even in safe mode nothing will work, I mean this is a really MEAN pest !!!

 

I was able to run ad-aware and spybot but they don't detect anything suspicious. All I know is it was infected with that thing "c:\windows\.protected" but i removed it with smitfraudfix

I'm running with 18 processes on the machine, nothing suspicious, simply system processes.

 

I really would like to post a hijack log but it is impossible, I just can't run it for more than a second or so, even in safe mode!
