      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.

Getting Bloated

4 posts in this topic

Hi guys

 

First off, apologies if you think this is a deliberate double post ~ I accidentally posted to an incorrect area.

 

I am relying on your superb reputation.

 

My homepage is constantly getting changed by something in the background, no end of pop ups are coming in whenever I close a browser window and now I have MYSEARCH and its tool bar emblazoned across my screen and nothing I can do will shift it.

 

I have deleted some things through the add and remove programs in control panel and run the latest version of SPYBOT which gives me a clean bill of health and STILL the problem continues (GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR).

 

So two things really, the first is with my security settings as high as I can practicably make them, what more can I do to stop these persistent invasions, and secondly can somebody please eyeball the following HJT log (which to me does look pretty bloated) and advise on ANYTHING that can safely be removed (the firebird near the top is a new one on me)

 

Many thanks in anticipation

 

Martyn

Hi,

Create a folder via Windows Explorer for HijackThis, then move the file (HijackThis.exe) to that folder. This way any backups created are saved in a legit folder.

 

1) Restart in Safe Mode (see "How To:" below)

2) Enable Hidden Files (see "How To:" below)

 

Locate and delete the following:

 

C:\PROGRAM FILES\VGAPRO~1 <--this folder

Note: locate by searching on: eq knob.exe

 

While still in Safe Mode:

Close all open windows, rescan with HijackThis and "Fix checked" the following:

Restart normally, rescan with SpyBot and post a fresh log.

As for FireBird, is that something you installed?

Instructions above followed to the letter. By the time HJT run the first time there was no sign of

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://mysearchnow.com/passthrough/index.h...w.google.co.uk/

 

and its not there in the log below either. Anyway, Spybot found now immediate threats and this is the latest log.

 

Thanks for the assistance so far

 

Martyn
