      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.

Homepage resets to www.008i.com and PC is crawling

6 posts in this topic

There are several symptoms that lead me to believe that some type of malware has made it's way onto my PC:

 

1 - Every now and then there's an attempt to reset my homepage to www.008i.com/search.html. I have Spybot set up to block this so it doesn't actually change but it won't stop trying.

 

2 - No matter how many times I run adaware (it is updated) it always finds the following registry: www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch

 

3 - and most annoying - my PC is constantly cranking as if there is some process running and it slows everything else down to a crawl.

 

I've run bot Adaware and spybot with the latest updates and read the FAQ and followed all the instructions. Below is my hijack this log. Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks

Joe

Well, I read through the tutorials and tried reading the hijack this log myself. It's been awhile since my homepage attempted to change but my PC still seems to crawl every now and then. Just re-ran adaware and found 3 items, then ran Spybot and found 2. Here is a fresh hijackthis log. Let me know what you think.

 

Thanks

Joe

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

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customize/...//www.yahoo.com

If you set this restriction yourself, using a program like Spybot Search & Destroy or SpywareGuard or your system administrator put these into place, leave the following 06 item; otherwise, FIX it with HijackThis:

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

 

You have RealPlayer running at Startup and this is not necessary. You can fix this with HJT, but you will also need to set it not to load in RealPlayer itself to keep it from resetting itself. This is the item to fix in HJT:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\ProgramFiles\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" –osboot

 

This item is considered to be resource hog that is not needed and it may be worthwhile to fix it with HJT. You will still be able to start it manually if you need it

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE

 

That should do it.

 

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.

To protect yourself further:

  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.

I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.

 

And also see TonyKlein's good advice

So how did I get infected in the first place?

 

Good luck :D
