      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.

DSO Exploit

2 posts in this topic

I've been hijacked, and have tried various methods over the past 5 days to get rid of CoolWeb. The about:blank hijack goes away for a while, then returns. Each time, I've run a variety of tools, but CoolWeb keeps returning.

 

Spybot gives me a "DSO Exploit" with two HKEY_USERS listings, and when I "fix" the item, and re-run Spybot, it's still there.

 

Ad-Aware finds up to 5 new Registry keys, 13 Registry values, and other new files.

 

The Killbox fix and reboot doesn't seem to make any difference.

 

CWShredder finds and fixes about every fifth run (about once a day), but to no avail.

 

After running Hijack This, I deleted all 05 06 07, and all unidentified BHOs and all 04s that were not identified in the link within the FAQ.

 

Norton AV hasn't found anything.

 

Trojan Hunter found no trojans (but was unable to unpack one file).

 

The only other clue I've found is that several programs are not letting go of memory, and grow until virtual memory is filled -- especially vpc32.exe and rtvscan.exe. MS programs are unwilling to release memory, sometimes after closing.

 

Here's my Hijack This file:

Any ideas out there? Thanks to all who've posted before, and especially for the FAQ, which helped me with portions of this problem.

I had the same DSO Exploit results on Spy Bot. I took the advice of BobO. See

his post 6:49am 6/26 for his solution. It worked for me. Good luck.
