      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.

AiSetupc.dll Anyone seen this?

2 posts in this topic

Hi folks,

I was working on a computer on our network Friday that had some major problems. After booting Windows2K, Winlogon.exe would crash within 15 to 60 seconds and restart the computer (no options). I removed a considerable amount of spyware, cleaned the BHOs and the LSPs. Removed almost everything from startup, to no avail. TargetSoft had windows by the short ones. I finally got rid of TaregetSoft (which had a huge number of entries) and then the shutdowns started again. I tracked the owner of the process to AiSetupc.dll, which was deeply hidden. It was taking Winlogon hostage from the start and attempting to reach a computer through an ISP in San Antonio (69.20.20.161). When I blocked it, it set up listening on about 40 ports and consumed all the memory and CPU cycles. It was so firmly imbedded in Winlogon that I had to boot to a CD and go into the console to delete it.

I haven't been able to find anything on this particular file. There are plenty of responses to AiSetup, but not AiSetupC. Has anyone run into this piece of crap? And do you know whose file it is? I suspect TargetSoft, but I can't be sure.

I found the culprit for this.

Look2Me uses the address 69.20.20.161 to connect to. The files can vary and it also attaches itself to Explorer.exe. There is a script that will get rid of it, but in most cases you will have to do it from the recovery console. Www.pchell.com is a good resource for removals and in their support section they have directions for removing Look2Me.
