      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.

Trouble deleting cws dll file

2 posts in this topic

Hi everybody, I've had a cws.searchx (at least according to cwshredder) infestation, and owing to thorough updated ad-aware, spybot, cwshredder, norton antivirus and AVG antivirus scans I've managed to eliminate what I think is all of the registry entries and all but one of the files. I followed the procedure described in http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=10469

to remove the mentioned registry entry and found the last file in my system32 folder, and in my case it is called logl.dll. However, unlike in the linked post, it is actually visible in my explorer.

 

Now I want to delete it. Unfortunately, explorer returns "access is denied", AVG that keeps detecting a virus in it can't remove it either, the program MoveOnBoot that can remove files before Windows is loaded also doesn't delete the file, and finally the method described in the linked post, deleting it through the recovery console after booting on a xp cd, does not work in my case. Also here does it torment with its "Access is denied" message. This surprises me somewhat, because I though virtually no files on the harddisk were used when working through the recovery console.

 

So, any help on removing this file is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I removed the read only atttribute with attrib -R logl.dll and then it could be deleted with del logl.dll.

 

With any luck, I will now live happily ever after.
