      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.

I've been cleaning alot of systems lately. (I do computer support for a state university and have a computer service business "on the side")

 

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON SYSTEMS FOR A WHILE AND HAVE A FEEL FOR WHAT SHOULD BE THERE AND WHAT SHOULDN'T. TAKE MY ADVICE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

I'm kind of surprised pestpatrol didn't get rid of some of these. If you haven't run it, do. If it's an older copy, uninstall and get a new copy, install and run it. Also try running cwsshredder, spybot, adaware etc.

 

If you're confident poking around your system, the following references look suspicious ( I really can't be sure without more info.) : window.exe , hkcmd, igfxtray, carpserv, idctup20.exe, the lex*.* files (if you don't have a lexmark printer), search assistant.

 

You can look in your system32 directory and sort by date. Often the problems are the newest files. If you can tell that they're not needed by when you've installed software, you can try deleting. You can also look at the properties on the file. If it looks legit (has a reference to a valid company etc) you might want to leave it.

 

If you're comfortable in the registry, you might want to consider deleting the following keys:

 

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [igfxTray] C:\WINDOWS\System32\igfxtray.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HotKeysCmds] C:\WINDOWS\System32\hkcmd.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CARPService] carpserv.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [window.exe] C:\WINDOWS\System32\window.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [intdctrr] C:\WINDOWS\System32\idctup20.exe

 

I assume AOL is your ISP. If not you might want to remove the references to it.(including the reference to wanmpsvc)

 

Looking closer, I think this is the root of your problem:

 

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file://C:\DOCUME~1\KYLECA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sp.html

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = file://C:\DOCUME~1\KYLECA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sp.html

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file://C:\DOCUME~1\KYLECA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sp.html

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = file://C:\DOCUME~1\KYLECA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sp.html

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = file://C:\DOCUME~1\KYLECA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sp.html

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = file://C:\DOCUME~1\KYLECA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sp.html

 

delete the referenced files and clear the referenced registry keys.

 

I would recommend doing things one at a time , reboot and check that you haven't caused problems.

 

I have a registry file that will lock your home page, If you want to try that, let me know. Hope some of this helps. - Rob
