      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.

Hi,

First thing to do is ...

 

Reconfigure Windows Explorer to show Hidden Files: [required step]

Open the Windows Explorer | Tools | Folder Options - View [tab]:

 

Scroll down to the "Files and Folders" section.

Select: "Display the contents of system folders".

 

Scroll down to the "Hidden Files and Folders" section.

Select: "Show hidden files and folders", Ok the prompt

Uncheck: "Hide file extensions for known file types"

Uncheck: "Hide protected operating system files" Ok the Prompt, click Apply

 

Click the "Apply to all Folders" button. Close Windows Explorer.

 

Next:

 

Close all open windows, rescan with HijackThis

Place a check in each of the following then click "Fix checked".

O8 - Extra context menu item: &iSearch The Web - res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\toolbar.dll/SEARCH.HTML

O16 - DPF: {1C78AB3F-A857-482E-80C0-3A1E5238A565} - http://toolbar.isearch.com/general/drm.cab

Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode [required step - see "How To" below]

 

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)

Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

 

Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:

 

C:\WINDOWS\System32\winhot32.dll <--this file

C:\WINDOWS\System32\toolbar.dll <--this file

 

Restart normally and then ...

 

Download icon11.gifAd-Aware

 

After installing Ad-Aware, and before running the program.

 

Update Ad-aware's Reference File: instructions icon11.gifhere

 

Required Step: icon11.gifReconfigure Ad-Aware for Full Scan

 

After the above, reboot, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log ...
