      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.

addvw.exe

2 posts in this topic

Hi I was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice on how to get rid of a file called addvw.exe. I can't get rid of it. I have tried hijackthis and it shows up in the log but I can't seem to find it when I got to delete it. Please help.

It's best if you post a HijackThis log so we can be sure this is something you need to delete. But, if you're sure...

 

You probably need to reconfigure Windows Explorer to Enable Hidden Files:

 

Open the Windows Explorer Folder Options - View [tab]:

Scroll down to the Files and Folders section.

Select: Display the contents of system folders.

Scroll down to the Hidden Files and Folders section.

Select: Show hidden files and folders, Ok the prompt

Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types

Uncheck: Hide protected operating system files

Ok the Prompt, click Apply

Click the Apply to all Folders button.

 

If the file is in use, you won't be able to delete it. In that case, reboot into SAFE MODE and you should be able to then.
