      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.

Windows Explorer

20 posts in this topic

My computer is out to get me and I'm sure of it. I have googled this problem but have received no help yet. For example, I am looking through my music and I will just be scrolling down, it will refresh itself all the way back up to the top and keeps doing it. The same exact thing happens with other Windows Explorer folders. If I leave my music open in windows explorer and I go to look at another task, say this browser or something, my taskbar will lock up every few minutes because windows explorer will refresh itself. It's getting unbearable lately...anything I can do? Sorry if this should've went in Malware or something, but I didn't think it should've.

I do not see anything in that log I would expect to cause the issue you have described. There is on orphan entry we can take care of.

 

[*]Run HijackThis, Choose "Do a system scan only" and checkmark the box next to the following entries.

  • R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - (no file)

[*]Close all other windows and browsers, then click "Fix Checked".

 

Let's look at another scan.

 

Please download ComboFix by sUBs:

 

NOTE: In the event you already have ComboFix, this is a new version that I need you to download.

  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Save it to a convenient place.

CAUTION: Do not mouse-click ComboFix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

 

Please reply with the following.

1. ComboFix log

2. A fresh HijackThis log

 

When did this problem start?

I do not see anything there either.

 

Are you getting any kind of error messages?

 

I see you installed a lot of recovery software mid june is it possible that the problem started around then?

Nope, no error messages at all. The desktop will just refresh randomly, and if I have windows explorer up and am looking at pictures it will go back up to the top suddenly, and the taskbar just locks up at points like those.

 

It was earlier than mid June though.

Lets try a different approach.

 

You can run a test at PCPitStop. Please register (it's free, don't worry) with PCPitStop and run the full tests here. When the tests are complete, a results page will pop up. Click "Share these results with TechExpress" on the left-hand side. Then copy the URL provided and post it here for me to review.

I was researching your problem online and found a few instances where lack of memory or hard disk space caused similar issues. That is why I had you run that scan, to see what your situtation is. Based on that scan I think it would be worth while to investigate the low disk space/low memory problem by reducing it what we can and see if the explorer refresh problem stops.

 

Please open Internet Explorer and click Tools->Internet Options->General, under Temporary Internet Files, click Settings in the box for the amount of disk space to use, enter 100 megabytes. Click OK to accept the changes.

 

Click on Start->Control Panel->System->System Restore. Click on the C:\ to highlight it and then click Settings. Move the slider back from 8856MB to around 2000MB you will probably not be able to get that exact number, but a little over or under is fine. Click Apply (it will take several minutes), then OK.

Ok go to Start->Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs and uninstall the following:

 

You can uninstall these older versions of Java you already have a much newer version installed:

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 8

J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9

Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.1_02

 

Since you no longer use Norton Anti-Virus you should uninstall these items as well (do these in this order):

Norton WMI Update

LiveReg (Symantec Corporation)

LiveUpdate 1.80 (Symantec Corporation)

 

 

The following items are optional, if you do not use the programs anymore they can be uninstalled to save space and make your computer run better, but if you still use them or think you might, feel free to keep them:

Azureus Vuze

Kaspersky Online Scanner

LimeWire 4.12.6

Microsoft Money 2003

Microsoft Money 2003 System Pack

Netscape (7.2)

Restorer2000 Pro 3.3

Space Rocks from Compaq (remove only)

Spyware Vanisher - Free Full Version

UltimateBet

Undelete NOW! Trial

Virtual Warfare from Compaq (remove only)

Quicken 2003 New User Edition

 

If there are any other items in the list that you posted you do not recognize and want to know if it is ok to remove let me know.

 

Since I see so much DVD ripping software I wonder if maybe you have downloaded a large video and have already burned it to DVD but have not deleted it from your computer. If so, you may want to remove it before the next step.

 

After you have finished the uninstalls reboot your computer and then go to Start->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Defragmenter, Click on C:\ to highlight it then click the Defragment button. This will take quite awhile. Once it finishes reboot your computer and then run another full scan at PCPitsop and post the link so I can see how we are doing now.

Thank you. I've removed mostly all of the unused items on the add/remove list that you suggested and I was wondering about a few of them.

~Java Web Start

~Microsoft.NET Framework (English) v1.0.3705

~the four S3 items

~Weblink

 

and I was wondering how long, approximately, it will take for Defrag. I've googled that it can take days, am I correct?

Java Web Start - is required by some Java applications - lets see what version it is. From the Add or Remove Programs Control Panel, click on Java Web Start to Highlight it, then click the link that says Click here for support information, let me know what version number it is.

 

Microsoft.NET Framework (English) v1.0.3705 - to the best of my knowledge this is required, I would leave it alone.

 

the four S3 items - These are part of your video card driver - I would leave them alone.

 

Weblink - I have no idea what this is. Following the example above please get me all information listed under support information, so we can try to figure out who made this and what it is.

 

I would not expect a normal defrag to take more than a couple of hours in XP. I normally start it and go do something else then occasionally walk by and wake the machine up. It does not seem to progress if the computer falls asleep. If it takes more than a couple hours, it can be safely cancelled. Just let me know what happens.

Sometimes programs do not list any information.

 

Try going to C:\Program Files\Weblink and right click on any files in that folder, click the version tab and let me know if there is any information at the top, if not click company and version at the bottom and see if there is any information.

 

I am concerned about your hard drive even after the uninstalls you now have less space than you had last time we scanned have you downloaded any movies or pictures between 7/9 and 7/13?

Hm..well it was in C:\Program Files\Softex I had to search for it. It's 1.0.0.0

 

As for the hard drive space I really don't recall downloading anything other than a few extras for my Paint Shop Pro (frames, filters, etc) but they weren't very large in size so I don't think they could do that. Other than that, no.

It looks like Weblink is an update function for your hardware, so I would leave it alone.

 

It also looks like you have been downloading program installers to the C:\Program files folder. Once the programs are installed you can delete the installer file. Please take a look I see several installers in there just in the last few months.

 

Also have you run an AVG Anti-Spyware scan? Did it find anything?
