      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'm VERY sure I have spyware, I just don't know

6 posts in this topic

BTW...tfswctrl.exe has been bugging me for a couple of months. Any idea what it is? Also, I see RealPlayer on the list, but I UNINSTALLED that ages ago!!! :grrr: nwiz.exe looks suspicious to me.

 

I was working in Paint Shop Pro two nights ago when I started noticing fonts that started with @MS that I never even installed! I have no idea how they got there, but they're bugging me and I'm scared they're some kinda spyware. I consider myself a novice in fixing my own computer...I need help. I took a screenshot of the font list so you would see what I"m talking about. Plus every time I start up Microsoft Word, it always says it's installing the required information, even though I've had Word installed on this computer since I got it in December 2003. I'm really scared and want to make it all stop! I checked Word and the same fonts you see listed in the screenshot are also in Word.

 

This is the screenshot: http://img19.photobucket.com/albums/v56/PZelda/wtf.jpg

Hello PZelda85, and welcome to the forums.

 

Your version of Hijack This is outdated. Please download version 1.98.0, available at either of the following locations:

 

http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

or

http://www.downloads.subratam.org/hijackthis.zip

 

You have PowerReg Scheduler in your log. This is a registration reminder that is used by a number of different companies. It is not needed and some people think that it reports back to the company about your computer, so I suggest fixing it...

 

Reboot your computer and post a new Hijack This log.

PZelda85,

 

:) Your log is clean. I only have one recommendation:

 

You have PowerReg Scheduler in your log. This is a registration reminder that is used by a number of different companies. It is not needed and some people think that it reports back to the company about your computer, so I suggest fixing it...

 

Fix the following entry in Hijack This:

 

O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe

 

Post a new Hijack This log.

Whew...Thank God it's nothing. I had a few spyware scares so I was pretty sure I had spyware. *WHEW*

 

Anyway - removed said item, and here is the new log:

PZelda85,

 

:) You're all cleaned up.

 

To prevent re-infection, I suggest the program Spywareblaster, available here:

http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

And to stop yourself from being redirected to any sites that download spyware, I suggest IE-Spyad, which is available here:

https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm

That adds many websites to your restricted sites list.

Also, TonyKlein offers some good answers in his post:

So How Did I Get Infected in the First Place?

 

Happy surfing!
