      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.

Recurring (and how!) Malware in IE

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I've read the FAQ, followed it as much as I could and spent about a week trying to fix this on my own, but to no avail.

 

I basically can't open IE6 without getting hit by Lycos Sidesearch, PowerTwain and a host of other adware. I've run Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy many, many times. (I've also installed SpywareBlaster.) They seem to remove programs, but they keep coming back. I'd just as soon not use IE at all (love Firefox), but my company uses a couple Web-based services that only work through IE.

 

Anyway. I'd very much appreciate any guidance you've got.

You have the Peper trojan, which requires special treatment to put it out of your misery!

Please download and run this uninstaller.

 

Click on the peperfix link, and download the program. Then go off line, and run the program. It will remove the files, leaving one orphaned entry to be cleaned up with Hijack this.

 

Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [38Z3MSR3DDD##A] C:\WINNT\system32\Gwf524W7.exe

Reboot and delete the file C:\WINNT\system32\Gwf524W7.exe

 

These may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

 

Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if your problems persist.

That seems to have worked! Thanks so much! (Though I didn't have to delete the file in addition to having HijackThis take care of it. The file wasn't in the folder (not even hidden) and I did a search of the C drive and it didn't show up at all.

 

Here's my current log:

Quick first question: I notice this line is new... should I be concerned?

Thanks again! Everything seems to be going swimmingly now. I opened IE and bopped around a few places and the logs seem to have stayed clean. I very, very much appreciate your help!

Clean log.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.

To protect yourself further:

  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.

I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.
