      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.

WIN32/WINSHOW.N. trojan virus

4 posts in this topic

I am gettting a message that reads "WIN32/WINSHOW.N.trojan worm detected in C:\WINDOWS\LSCPZU.DAT.

File Stutus: Deleted because of trojan worm.

I have run spybot and noadware, but neither has corrected the problem. How do I eradicate this menace?


Thanks in advance!

We need a closer look at what's happening.

Please download Hijack this

Copy it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".


When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.

Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

I am sorry, but I have jumped ahead of you. I followed instructions found on this website to custom scan with adaware, and it removed some of the problem. However, my web browser is still screwed up. For instance, I couldn't get to this sight via my normal MSN browser. I had to log into my home aol account and go through its search/browser to get in. I am unable to go to other web sites that I frequently visit. Following is my hjt log:

I think my log file is clean now, but tell me what you see.

I'm sure I made some critical error.

Nothing bad in your log, but there should be entries before the O4s. Have you deleted anything using Hijack this?
