      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.

Trojan Horse Backdoor Help.

9 posts in this topic

Hi. I'm a first timer here. Also, I'm not exactly what you call a computer wiz. I use my computer primarely for work and college. (Making a website, research, etc.) I don't have much free time for fun. I believe I got the virus from a infected email my wife got from a friend stating they may have a virus or from a website I visited. That's when things started to pop up literally.

 

I know a little about viruses and trojans but am looking for help on this one and looking to learn something in the meantime.

 

I came across a Trojan that I can't seem to get rid of with CW-Shredder, HiJackthis, AVG or Spybot. The programs did get rid of a lot of spyware and other trojans however, I'm still getting a AVG warning stating that I have the following.

 

"Trojan Horse Backdoor. Ruledor.C"

It's telling me to run the AVG for Windows.

 

It says it's located at

 

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{F03BC7CA-958E-4E73-B64E-7D9F75261CF2}\RP163\A0011762.exe"

 

The thing is, I have no such directory in C: called "System Volume Information".

I can't even fine the "A0011762.exe" file anywhere.

 

"My guess" is it's somthing in the registry that needs to be deleted?

 

 

Can anyone shed some light on this? Thank you in advance.

Just wanted to say that the advice you gave worked. (knock on wood.) Thank you for your help! I learned something.

 

The only thing I'm having fun dealing with are Explorer pop-ups. I have found that these things have a "dfn" extension (if I remember correctly). I delete them and they go away for a while. Trying to learn more about this problem between work, school and other priorities.

 

Thanks again, I'm very greatful!

Kind regards-

Jets

O.k. Just did an AVG update, ran a scan and came across the following as a virus, but am unable to delete or heal.

 

c:\program file\autoupdate\autoupdate.exe

 

 

I tried doing research on this file coming up as a virus and can't seem to find an answer as to what , what to do, is it lagit, etc. I didn't seem to find anything that gave me a clear answer or anything that I could understand. I'm stumped.

 

Advice from the experts again please!

Thanks in advance once again.

John
