      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.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Browser Hijacked

8 posts in this topic

I have followed the FAQ and read all of the instructions and I am enclosing my Hijack this log. I ran Hijack this and got rid of suspicious entries, then ran buster the spybot and adaware, rebooted my computer and still get my google search page switched to this url:

 

http://search-to-find.com/sec.php?qq=Free%21+&pin=96676

 

The pop-ups have stopped for now but I am afraid that they will come back as well.

 

Here is my Hijack Log:

I have removed the R0 about ten times but it keeps coming back.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

It seems a few had the same problem at this website.

 

http://www.computercops.biz/postt52022.html

 

If you read a bit farther down a solution is given if not i can just post it for you.

 

"I just got rid of this problem on a customers computer. The services.exe inside the winnt\system32\inetdata folder is a false services.exe. I used the killbox (http://download.broadbandmedic.com) to kill this file. after it was killed windows thought it was the real services.exe so started a count down. during this one minute to shut down, i used hijack this to get rid of the offending entries in hijackthis (references to services.exe and the homepage). after this, i rebooted and was able to change the home page and it is still msn.com (or default) at this point. I'm running adaware and spybot right now, but i think the problem is solved."

Thanks...I have 2 services.exe one in windows\system32 and another in windows\system32\dllcache. The second one is smaller at 72kb, the first is larger at 100kb even though both were 99kb when created.

 

I have loked at the other forum but can not see reference to services.exe in my Hijack This logfile.

 

Could one of these be the offending file and if so, which one?

 

Thanks for the fast response by the way...Reed

Bump

 

I have now tried various fixes based upon reading others' experiences in this forum. I have run Hijack, checked off the offending entries (at least the ones that make sense to me), booted into safe mode and run buster twice, CW Shredder, Ad-Aware, then run hijack again, deleted the temp and temporary internet files for every user, deleted several suspicious files, then looked in the registry for any "services" entries then rebooted my computer. I have done this about three times now and there is still no difference in my pop-ups and browser hijacking. Here is my log from HiJack This:

Hello.

 

I am fixed finally!! I followed phone god's thread which was similar to mine. Once I knew the offending file names, this is the process I used, including the time travel test at the end:

 

"Hello please download the latest version of About:Buster and unzip it to your desktop. Don´t run it yet.

 

Now please move Hijack This to its own folder, for example: C:/HiJackThis/HiJackThis.exe

This way it can store backups that could be needed to fix anything in a later stage if something seems to be broken

 

How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= Please check this link for instructions on how to download, install and then use adaware. Don´t use it yet.

1 You already have Adaware installed. Make sure it's up to date. Just open Adaware and click on *Check for Updates Now* and then *Connect*. It will find a new reference-file. Click *ok* and let it download and install the updates by clicking on *Finish* .This will return you to the main screen. You should now see Reference File # : 01R334 24.07.2004 or higher listed.

 

2 Print out these instructions so you have them handy as most of the steps need to be done in safe mode and you may not be able to go online.

 

3. Next, go to Start->Run and type "Services.msc" (without quotes) then hit Ok

Scroll down and find the service called "Network Security Service". When you find it, double-click on it. In the next window that opens, click the Stop button, then click on properties and under the General Tab, change the Startup Type to Disabled. Now hit Apply and then Ok and close any open windows. This service is installed by the malware. If this service is not listed go ahead with the next step.

 

4. Reboot to Safe Mode

How to start the computer in

Safe mode

 

 

5. Make sure your PC is configured to show hidden files

 

Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked.

Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"

Click "Apply" then "OK"

 

6.CLOSE ALL WINDOWS AND BROWSERS Scan with Hijack This and put checks next to all the following, then click "Fix Checked"

 

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINNT\system32\cmimd.dll/sp.html#28129

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINNT\system32\cmimd.dll/sp.html#28129

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = res://cmimd.dll/index.html#28129

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINNT\system32\cmimd.dll/sp.html#28129

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {D2B7238E-2C0A-6C63-109D-CE5E7C0A8E20} - C:\WINNT\javaek32.dll (file missing)

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. Delete the following files if present.

C:\WINNT\system32\cmimd.dll

C:\WINNT\javaek32.dll

 

 

 

 

8. Double click AboutBuster.exe that you downloaded earlier. Click OK, click Start, then click OK. This will scan your computer for the bad files and delete them. Save the report(copy and paste into notepad or wordpad and save as a .txt file) and post a copy back here when you are done with all the steps.

 

9. Scan with Adaware and let it remove any bad files found.

 

10. Clean out temporary and TIF files. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

 

Temporary Files

Temporary Internet Files

Recycle Bin

 

11. Reboot to normal mode, scan again with Hijack This and post a new log here.

 

12. Finally, do an online scan HERE. Let it remove any infected files found.

 

Replace Deleted Files

It is also possible that the infection may have deleted up to three files from your system. If these files are present, to be safe I suggest you overwrite them with a new copy.

 

Go here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/winfiles.html#control and download the version of control.exe for your operating system. If you are running Windows 2000, copy it to c:\winnt\system32\. For Windows XP, copy it to c:\windows\system32\.

 

Download the Hoster from here: http://members.aol.com/toadbee/hoster.zip

Press 'Restore Original Hosts' and press 'OK'

Exit Program.

 

If you have Spybot S&D installed you may also need to replace one file.

Go here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/winfiles.html#sdhelper

and download SDHelper.dll. Copy the file to the folder containing you Spybot S&D program (normally C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy)

 

Additionally, Please check your ActiveX security settings. They may have been changed by this CWS variant to allow ALL ActiveX!! If they have been changed, reset your active x security settings in IE as recommended.

 

 

Thanks to mmx? for the fix and thanks for having this forum!!!!
