      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.

HJT LOG PLEASE HELP

10 posts in this topic

I may have downloaded some nasties when I got a program from an apparently questionable website. When I installed, my zone alarm gave an internet connection atempt for remoteupdate.exe, ar4.exe, adao.exe,

fingerprint.exe,vnmispoisn_downloader.exe, gnup.exe...It was very strange. Can anyone please check this log to see if there is anything strange looking. I scanned w/ norton antivirus, adaware, cwshredder and spybot.(all updated).

Hi,

First thing to do is ...

 

Update Ad-aware's Reference File: instructions icon11.gifhere

 

Required Step: icon11.gifReconfigure Ad-Aware for Full Scan

 

Note: do not run Ad-Aware yet, just update and reconfigure.

 

Reconfigure Windows Explorer to show Hidden Files: [required step]

Open the Windows Explorer | Tools | Folder Options - View [tab]:

 

Scroll down to the "Files and Folders" section.

Select: "Display the contents of system folders".

 

Scroll down to the "Hidden Files and Folders" section.

Select: "Show hidden files and folders", Ok the prompt

Uncheck: "Hide file extensions for known file types"

Uncheck: "Hide protected operating system files" Ok the Prompt, click Apply

 

Click the "Apply to all Folders" button. Close Windows Explorer.

 

Next:

 

Close all open programs and browsers, rescan with HijackThis

Place a check in each of the following then click "Fix checked".

 

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [istinstall_zazzer.exe] istinstall_zazzer.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [lite.exe] lite.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [vnmispoisn_downloader.exe] vnmispoisn_downloader.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Aqua.exe] Aqua.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AR4] c:\documents and settings\owner\local settings\temp\AR4.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [GNUp] c:\documents and settings\owner\local settings\temp\GNUp.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mswspl] C:\WINDOWS\System32\vnmispoisn_downloader.exe

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [uli] C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\adao.exe

 

Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode [required step - see "How To" below]

 

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)

Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

 

Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:

 

C:\WINDOWS\System32\vnmispoisn_downloader.exe <--this file

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\adao.exe <--this file

 

Locate and delete via atb_search.gif Start > Search > Advanced Options

istinstall_zazzer.exe <--this file

lite.exe <--this file

Aqua.exe <--this file

Note: also delete the files you mentioned in your post.

 

While still in Safe Mode, run Ad-Aware and fix everything it finds.

 

After the above, reboot, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log ...

Hi,

Your log looks clean now ... good job!

 

Last Step:

 

1) Empty the Recycle Bin

2) "Flush System Restore" (see "How To" below)

Basically turn off System Restore, reboot, run a full (updated) NAV scan, reboot and turn System Restore back on and create a new Restore Point.

 

How To: Configure Norton AntiVirus to scan all files

 

I would suggest adding some "Defense" to your system ...

Thanks again for the help.

I do have spyblaster 3.2. Is this an adequate "host file" program.

I did download the custom blocking list and inserted it in the spyblaster directory.

Also, is there a reason why my homepage is changed to google from time to time. It doesn't happen regularly, but every now and then.

I normally have it set to yahoo.com.

Hi,

You're welcome ... glad to see you were able to resolve your problem.

Is this an adequate "host file" program.
Well of course it is! it's mine :rofl:
Also, is there a reason why my homepage is changed to google from time to time.
I have no idea ... do you have more than one user?

I'm actually the only user for my system. Now that I think about it, I just recently use "AboutBuster". Does this reset the homepage? Also, I'm assuming I don't have to keep Spyblaster as a running process to allow it to work. I just make sure it is updated, and close it out?

 

P.S. Is it just me, or has this virus, worm, spyware problem been getting a lot worse lately? What do you think of Service Pack 2?

Hi,

Yes, About:Blaster resets your page to Google ...

I don't have to keep Spyblaster as a running process
Exactly ...
Is it just me, or has this virus, worm, spyware problem been getting a lot worse lately?
Not really, just getting harder to remove ...
What do you think of Service Pack 2
It's much needed! lot's of new features built-in - pop-up blocker, etc.
