      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.

Everytime I bring up IE I get this annoying about:blank search site and a spyware removal popup. I have run adaware and Spybot S&D to no avail. Here is a copy of my hijack this log. Please help. Thanks!

I see this in your Startdreck log

WindUpdates=C:\PROGRAM FILES\WINDUPDATES\WINUPDT.EXE

We will want to deal with that one at some time

Let's first try and get rid of the hidden .dll

 

Hijackthis has been updated since you last posted

Can you please update your version

Open hijackthis in that newly created folder

Click CONFIG---Misc. Tools---Check for updates online

 

Set Windows to Show Hidden Files and Folders

 

Download and unzip Win98Fix.zip

Win98Fix.zip

 

Also download CWShredder and save to desktop----run this later

CWShredder

 

Disconnect from the NET

 

Now, ensure that Win98Fix.zip is unzipped

 

-DoubleClick on: 'RunFix.reg' file, Answer 'yes'

to the prompt!

-RESTART your computer

 

Find and delete:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSGPOM.DLL <---this file

 

 

Open CWShredder and let it FIX all problems

RESTART again

 

Open Ad-Aware---CHECK FOR UPDATES

Set these additional options for custom scan

click the gear wheel at the top and check these options:

 

General> activate these: "Automatically save log-file" and "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal"

 

Scanning > activate these: "Scan within archives", "Scan active processes", "Scan registry", "Deep scan registry", "Scan my IE Favorites for banned sites" and "Scan my Hosts file"

 

Tweaks > Scanning Engine> activate this: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

 

Tweaks > Cleaning Engine: activate these: "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

 

Click "Proceed" to save your settings, then click "Start", make sure "Activate in-depth scan" is ticked green then scan your system. When the scan is finished, the screen will tell you if anything has been found, click "Next". The bad files will be listed, right click the pane and click "Select all objects" - this will put a check mark in the box at the side, click "Next" again and click "OK" at the prompt "# objects will be removed. Continue?".

 

RESTART one more time

Don't open a browser yet, instead access Internet Options via Control

Panel

Under the Programs tab "Reset Web Settings"

Under the General tab---Delete files + offline content---Also Reset home page

 

Post back with an updated and fresh hijackthis log, can I also see a new Startdreck log again
