      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.

popups on google page:CWS ml.iehlprobj?

2 posts in this topic

After a hijack a couple of weeks ago I ran spybot and Ad-aware which restored my browser settings. I don't really remember the details of the initial attack, I just did what I could to clean it, and thought I'd been succesful. However, after I started getting random popups, I realized I was still infected and have tried many times to get rid of everything, but haven't been able to find any info on this specific problem. I still get extraneous search results on google (using the google toolbar or directly on the google page), as well as a drop down popup whenever I run a search on google. Ad-Aware will indicate 2 registry entries under HK_CLASSES_ROOT, ml.iehlprobj and ml.iehlprobj1 and a registry key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Toolbar. These are all identified as CoolWebsearch objects. Additionally, there are various data miner cookies present. After removal, rebooting and running Ad-Aware again, the ml.iehlprobj and ml.iehlprobj1 entries return. After running IE the other registry key returns and the data miners start showing up again. I've run CWshredder, which comes up clean.


EDIT: Here are the hjt entries I'm suspicious of after doing further reading:

This can be closed, I got it all cleaned up after getting help at another forum (much faster, I might add)


The rather interesting details can be found on this thread


Also, if anyone is having trouble getting a response here, try the forums at www.bleepingcomputer.com


Spywareinfo certainly had a lot of good info and the reading I did here got me pointed in the right direction, but I got some actual help with my HJT log at bleepingcomputer.com
