      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.

FindnFix problem

8 posts in this topic

I've down loaded 'FindnFix' to my destop its location is in C:\Documents and



I'am infected with 'about-blank' and I want to be prepaired when I am offered

help in removing it.


I'am able to extract 'findnfix' from my desk top icon and open the fille.

when I double click on the '!LOG.BAT!' folder it will open and start to log my

system and adding information to some txt files that "FindnFix' created.


Then after 3 mins. or so I get a message box that says C:\Windows\System\

Cmd.exe not a vallid Win32 application.


I hope someone can help to get 'FindnFix' to work for me.


Thanks in Advance

Don't attempt to use it until a qualified helper suggests it.

I think my computer settings are incorrect.

Any folder that ends in'.txt' can't be open. I get 'not a valid Win32 application'


Any advice will be greatly appreciated

There are no "folders" that end with "txt" so I assume you meant "files" ... :scratchhead:


Is your notepad.exe hijacked?

That's likely the reason!

Check all copies in Windows, System32 folder and Dllcache folder

and replace the missing/corrupted.


If no luck and you are using XP, you can download the original 'notepad_xp' from the 'FINDnFIX page' in my signature, unzip and replace the corrupted copies.

The location of the extracted FINDnFIX' should be no other than

"Drive"\FINDnfix.. (c:\FINDnFIX\)

It will NOT function from any other location/path!

If you dragged any files out of it, it's more likely useless!

CNM thank you for your reply. For some reason I was not able to see your post

until I posted a reply to my original post.


I will wait for a helper per your post.

Freeatlast is the finest helper you could find. :D

Do whatever she says. She is the one who wrote FindnFix and she is an Expert.

Right up above your last post.


Generally you won't see new posts until you refresh your screen, so do that often.

CNM I have read and studied many of your posts and FreeatLast posts in all topics on this forum. I am very impressed with the knowledge and skill you both



Freeatlast I down loaded 'notepad.exe' from your sig. I forgot that I deleted it some time ago. I have 'wordpad' that I assumed replaced it.

I have uninstalled 'FindnFix' for the time being will wait for further instruction.

I had copied an infected file to the 'Junkxxx' file/folder in 'FindnFix'.

I then ran AVG 6.0 with current updates. It found the infected file 'Trojan horse

BackDoor.Agent.BA' in the 'Junkxxx" file/follder. AVG could not repair or move

the trojan to its 'vault'.

I then ran on line scan from 'trendmicro' it found the same infection, and a additional virus in the 'system restore' on my comput.

I re-ran AVG and this time it found both 'infections'. It now was able to put both infections in its 'vault'.

My comput has been clean from 'about-blank' since 7/26/04. I've not 'time travel' yet to see if it will be back. I look forward to your counsel. Thanks in advance.
