      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.

I get pops up everytime I try and search or go to an internet address. My I idea was to remove O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{93947A4F-5173-4CC7-A29B-D8F2AD4E93DF}: NameServer = 65.32.2.136,65.32.2.147 but wanted to ask first. Is there a good way to go about learning what is what for the future...so I don't have to bother anyone. Any ideas or help would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance...BusyBeezer

Hello BusyBeezer,

 

Open Hijackthis, click Scan, then put a check next to the following entries:

 

 

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

 

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch

 

O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.real.com/2230929cda6ed1...ip/RdxIE601.cab

Then Close all open Windows and Browsers (have only HJT open) and click "Fix Checked".

 

Then, reboot.

 

Next, You show signs of a Look2Me infection.

A tool has been made by Option^Explicit and freeatlast to find and remove it.

 

Please download VX2Finder from this link, and save it to your Desktop.

 

http://www.downloads.subratam.org/VX2Finder.exe

 

Run Vx2Finder click on the *click to find VX2.BetterInternet* button. Then click *make log*.

 

Copy and paste the contents of the log into your next reply here, along with a new HJT log.

As for the O17 entry, I would say it's your IP, here is the info I found on it:

Hi BusyBeezer,

 

Let's take care of the Vx2/BetterInternet infection first.

 

( You might want to print this part, because you will not be on the internet to perform these steps)

 

 

Sign off and stay off the internet until the entire procedure is complete.

 

Open VX2Finder and click on the *click to find VX2.BetterInternet* button.

 

Then select the *Delete these files* button.

You will be left with notice about one to be deleted on reboot.

It will ask to reboot on deletion of the last file, so now Reboot.

 

-----------------

Once back in Windows:

 

Open VX2Finder again and click on these buttons in the right pane:

 

user agent,

Guardian.reg,

restore policy

 

Exit and reboot.

 

Run Vx2Finder once more and click on the *click to find VX2.BetterInternet* button. Then click *make log*.

Then, please post it here with a fresh HijackThis log.

Hello BusyBeezer,

 

Good job so far!

The VX2.BetterInternet infection looks cleaned up, so let's clean up the rest of your log now.

 

Open Hijackthis, click Scan, then put a check next to the following entries:

 

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 auto.search.msn.com

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 search.netscape.com

O1 - Hosts: 69.20.16.183 ieautosearch

 

 

Now, Close all open Windows and Browsers (have only HJT open) and click "Fix Checked".

 

Then, reboot and please post another HJT log to look over.

Good job BusyBeezer,

 

Your log looks clean! :thumbsup:

 

Here is some free protection you should consider:

Download and install:

 

SpywareBlaster will block bad ActiveX and malevolent cookies.

 

IESPYAD puts over 4000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.

 

Check for updates occaisionally.

 

And also see

So how did I get infected in the first place?
