      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.

Hello Amadeux,


We got a lot going on there, so we will take it step by step...


First, download the PeperFix, and save it to your desktop. Run the program, by clicking on Find and Fix, and let it remove the infection. Once its done, fix the following line in HJT:


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [2LRX2W83X2T3MQ] C:\WINDOWS\System32\Xgf5Ow5.exe


Next, start About:Buster, hit Ok, Start, And Ok again to start the scan. It will generate a log. Post that log along with a new Hijack this log here. If this doesnt work, boot into safe mode and try. How to boot into safe mode?


Next, download Ad-aware from: http://www.lavasoft.de/res/aaw6.exe


Install the program and launch it.


First, in the main window, look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest reference files.


Next, we need to configure Ad-aware for a full scan.

Then Turn off System Restore. To do this, right-click My Computer and click Properties. Next, click the System Restore tab and check "Turn off System Restore". Finally, click Apply, and then click OK. Now, to finish resetting the system restore point, we need to turn ON System Restore once again. To do this, right-click My Computer and click Properties. Next, click the System Restore tab and UN-Check "Turn off System Restore". Finally, click Apply, and then click OK.


Next a full scan here and let it clean, making sure you reboot when it is done.

Hello Amadeux,


First: Please go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs, and look for an entry called TV Media and Altnets Point Manager. If they are there, please uninstall them by clicking on the "Remove" button.


I also noticed that you are using P2PNetworking. This is not technically malware by itself, but it installs malware in order to run properly and it opens the door for every other nasty program you can think of. I strongly recommend that you remove it. Read this article for alternatives that will provide some of the same function without the garbage: http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/p2p/ If you opt to remove it, first use Add/Remove Program to remove it. Go to your control panel, then to add/remove programs and uninstall P2P networking. If asked whether you also want to remove Altnet components, say 'Yes'. P2P Networking is a totally useless Kazaa add-on, and it's been reported to be responsible for serious system slowdowns. You may also want to run KazaaBegone, which can be found here


Second: With all other browsers closed, please fix the following items in HijackThis:


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

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AltnetPointsManager] C:\Program Files\Altnet\Points Manager\Points Manager.exe -s

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [P2P Networking] C:\WINDOWS\System32\P2P Networking\P2P Networking.exe /AUTOSTART

O16 - DPF: {1D6711C8-7154-40BB-8380-3DEA45B69CBF} (Web P2P Installer) -


Reboot, and in safe mode (press F8 after the BIOS loads), and delete the following folders:


C:\Program Files\TV Media<---folder

C:\WINDOWS\System32\P2P Networking<---folder


Good Luck :)
