      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.

homepage keeps resetting to res://...

5 posts in this topic

I've posted this before, but for some reason HiJackThis got deleted. So I'm posting this and a new log again.

 

I've read the FAQ and followed to directions... So, for some reason, my homepage for Internet Explorer keeps resetting to res://mksrr.dll/index.html#96676 and those "Only the Best" pop-ups keep coming up.

 

Here's my log.

Doing what is detailed here:

 

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?showtopic=10120

 

[ But in points 6) and 10) they say SpyBot when they really mean SpySweeper. You must have SpySweeper running so that the bug can't set your home page back to the bad web site]

This is a new variant of CWS which requires special treatment to remove.

 

Please take the following steps:

 

First, please enable viewing of hidden/system files per the instructions here: http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html

 

IMPORTANT Be sure all browser and explorer windows are closed.

 

Using the Task Manager end the task on the following processes:

C:\WINDOWS\apirf32.exe

C:\WINDOWS\apphp.exe

 

Next, go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit OK.

Scroll down and find the service called "Network Security Service".

When you find it, double-click on it.

In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then change the Startup Type to Disabled.

Now hit Apply and then OK and close any open windows.

 

 

Run HijackThis and place a check mark next to the following items:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {E400588B-23FE-95C4-A72D-6A13CA5149FE} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysvs32.dll

 

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\mksrr.dll/sp.html#96676

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.hotmail.com/

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\mksrr.dll/sp.html#96676

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = res://mksrr.dll/index.html#96676

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\mksrr.dll/sp.html#96676

 

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [apirf32.exe] C:\WINDOWS\apirf32.exe

 

Press 'Fix Checked'.

 

Exit HiJackThis.

 

Reboot into Safe Mode* and delete the following files: <insert R* entry dll's>

(also deleted any *.dat files with the same name as one of these *.exe files)

C:\WINDOWS\apirf32.exe

C:\WINDOWS\apphp.exe

C:\WINDOWS\system32\mksrr.dll

C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysvs32.dll

 

While still in Safe Mode* finish the cleanup process, please run through the rest of these steps:

 

Go to Start --> Run and type Regedit then click Ok.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

and highlight Services in the left pane. In the right pane, look for any of these entries:

 

__NS_Service

__NS_Service_2

__NS_Service_3

 

If any are listed, right-click that entry in the right pane and choose Delete.

 

Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root

and highlight Root in the Left Pane. In the right pane, look for these entries:

 

LEGACY___NS_Service

LEGACY___NS_Service_2

LEGACY___NS_Service_3

 

If you find it, right-click it in the right-pane and choose delete.

 

If you have trouble deleting a key. Then click once on the key name (LEGACY__NS_SERVICE_ or another name that starts with LEGACY__NS_SERVICE) to highlight it. Then click on the Permission menu option under Security or Edit. Then Uncheck "Allow inheritable permissions" and press copy. Then click on everyone and put a checkmark in "full control". Then press apply and ok and attempt to delete the key again.

 

Exit regedit, boot in Normal Mode.

 

To remove the remainder of the files this exploit deposits, run this Online AntiVirus scan, removing all it finds:

 

Trend Micro (PC-cillin) - Free on-line Scan

http://housecall.antivirus.com

 

 

=== Check ActiveX Settings ===

Adjust your security settings for ActiveX:

Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK.

Now press "Custom Level."

In the ActiveX section, set the first option, 'Download signed controls', to 'Prompt; set the

second option, 'Download unsigned controls', to 'Disable'; and finally, set 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'Disable'.

 

 

=== Replace Deleted Files ===

It is also possible that the infection may have deleted up to three files from your system. If these files are present, to be safe I suggest you overwrite them with a new copy.

 

Go here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/winfiles.html#control and download the version of control.exe for your operating system. If you are running Windows 2000, copy it to c:\winnt\system32\. For Windows XP, copy it to c:\windows\system32\.

 

Download the Hoster from here: http://members.aol.com/toadbee/hoster.zip

Press 'Restore Original Hosts' and press 'OK'

Exit Program.

 

If you have Spybot S&D installed you may also need to replace one file.

Go here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/winfiles.html#sdhelper and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy)

 

Additionally, Please check your ActiveX security settings. They may have been changed by this CWS variant to allow ALL ActiveX!! If they have been changed, reset your active x security settings in IE as recommended.

 

 

Download the latest version of Adaware (get the free edition)

http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/

(choose download from the left hand menu)

 

Go to: Select Full Install and choose the download location of your choice (1.7mb)

Choose Download from http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail.php3?fid=965718306 <--(I found FileForum easiest)

 

Be sure to UPDATE BEFORE SCANNING FIRST!! That is a very important step and I have included easy directions.

 

After download and installing first, please update the program. Just open Adaware and click on *Check for Updates Now* and then *Connect*. It will find a new reference-file. Click *ok* and let it download and install the updates by clicking on *Finish* .This will return you to the main screen. You should now see Reference File # :01R325 22.06.2004 or higher listed.

 

Next, go to Settings (the gear icon at the top) and then *Scanning* and checkmark these items so they will be green:

Scan within archives

Scan my IE Favorites for banned URLS

Scan my hosts file

 

Then click *proceed* to save settings.

 

Click on *Tweak* next. And checkmark to make this green also:

Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion

 

Click on *proceed*

 

Next, from the main screen, click on *Start* (lower righthand corner) and put a dot in the box next to *use Custom scanning options*, then click *Next* to start your scan.

 

Checkmark any items found after scanning to remove (this will actually put them in quarantine and can recover from backup if any should not be removed).

 

Reboot your PC after cleaning with Adaware and scan again. Repeat the process until no further items are found as bad.

 

Run HiJackThis and post a new log in this thread.
