      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.

TROJ & BKDR Viruses found!

5 posts in this topic

I have Avast 4, and it initially did a PRE WINDOWS scan for viruses. Something went wrong and now it will not preform that same scan.

 

I have a "Windows Installer" window popping up EVERY TIME I click on a window or program... it states that it is trying to install an "Office XP Component"

 

I need to get rid of these annoying files..... HELP PLEASE!!! :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

Hello

 

Let's have a look at a HijackThis Log.

 

If you don't already have HijackThis, Download HijackThis from http://www.downloads.subratam.org/hijackthis.zip and create a log. Run the program, and press Scan. You will notice the Scan button will turn into a "Save Log" button. Save the log and Post that log onto this topic. DO NOT Delete or modify anything yet, as some of it is needed to keep your system in Good Shape.

Close all open windows AND browsers and check these items for HJT to fix:

You are running MyWebSearch. This is not technically malware, but it is thought to be bad by many experts and it will bring malware with it. There are safer alternatives available such as the Google toolbar. I recommend that you remove it. Here are the components to fix with HJT and you will need to remove the main program as well:

O2 - BHO: MyWebSearch Search Assistant BHO - {00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL

O2 - BHO: mwsBar BHO - {07B18EA1-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL

O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://bar.mywebsearch.com/menusearch.html?p=ZSzeb029

 

You are using DAP which is not technically malware, but it may include malware and allow it into your system. You can find safer alternatives here: http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php?cat=dlman#dlman To remove it, fix these items with HJT and then remove it in Add/Remove Programs

O8 - Extra context menu item: &Download with &DAP - C:\PROGRA~1\DAP\dapextie.htm

O8 - Extra context menu item: Download &all with DAP - C:\PROGRA~1\DAP\dapextie2.htm

 

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?

 

Once in Safe Mode:

 

 

Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall:

MyDailyHoroscope

WeatherBug

if listed.

 

Now, we can proceed to delete these directories:

 

C:\Program Files\MyDailyHoroscope

C:\Program Files\AWS

 

The following DIRECTORY CONTENTS (But not the directory) need to be deleted while in safe mode.

* C:\Windows\Temp\

* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ <=This will delete all your cached internet

content including cookies. This is recommended and strongly suggested.

* C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\

* C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\

* C:\Documents and Settings\<Any other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\

* Empty your "Recycle Bin".

 

Then disable your system restore

 

1 Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2 Click the System Restore tab.

3 Check the "Turn off System Restore" or "Turn off System Restore on all drives" check box.

4 Click Apply

5 this will delete all existing restore points. Click Yes to do this.

6 Click OK.

 

Reboot into normal mode enable System Restore and post a fresh log in this thread to give you further recommendations.

TheMajor,

It is a waste of time for two Helpers to be working with you at the same time. There are many people waiting for just one Helper, so I am discontinuing our thread in order to help someone else.

Have a nice day.
