      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.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

another mypoiskovik.com infection

5 posts in this topic

Hey All, my homepage keeps getting set to mypoiskovik.com. I have tried HJT! and CWShredder with no luck (not sure exactly what files to delete/fix other than the obvious ones). I would appreciate it if the experts could help me out. Logfile is below.

thanks in advance,

peyto

p.s. - virus scan turned up trojan.byteverify which was deleted, but problem persists.

mypoiskovik.com can infect your system in many ways. To remove it, please follow the procedure listed below:

  1. Make sure your settings allow you to view "Hidden files". Open up any explorer windows and click on "Tools" => "Folder Options" => "View" and be sure to check off "Show Hidden Files and Folders".
  2. Run hijackthis and put a check next to these entries and then FIX checked after ALL other windows are closed (including this one):

[*]In HijackThis, make sure that none of the following entries are present, if they are, remove them as well:

  • O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [iEengine] C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe
  • O4 - Global Startup: winlogin.exe
  • O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [dllhelp] c:\windows

[*]RESTART your computer in Safe Mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?

[*]Find and delete these files or folders:

  • C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEengine.exe <= File
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogin.exe <= This file, NOTICE the spelling. Please watch that you do not delete winlogon.exe (that is a legit file in the same directory)
  • winlogon.exe in any location other that c:\windows\system32. <= windows may be winnt. win98 etc, depending on your operating system. c:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe is a legitimate, system file that MUST NOT be deleted. One of the more common places for winlogon.exe to hide is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs <= Be sure to check this location.
  • m.exe
  • dlltemp.exe
  • dllhelp.exe
  • Some files may be harder to spot (As mypoiskovik randomly changes the file names) so proceed with the following only if the infection was not found in any of the previous steps:
    • Click on "Start" => "Search" => "For files or Folders" => Search for "All Files and Folders" => Type in *.exe *.dll => Under "When was it modified" => "Specify Date" => Date of suspected infection through Today.
    • Hit search and wait for a while, proably at least 1/2 hour, depending on your CPU speed.
    • This will give you a list of every insidious .exe file and .dll file that may be trojans infecting your computer.
    • Look at the files and see what looks suspicious. DO NOT delete anything is you are at all unsure as you may have valid file names listed. Post the list back here for us to review and make recommendations.

[*]While still in safe mode would you please run CoolWeb Shredder one more time and let it FIX all problems.

[*]RESTART back in Normal mode. Don't open a browser yet.

[*]Instead, access your "Internet options" via "Control Panel" and under the "Programs" tab, "Reset Web Settings".

[*]Under the "General" tab => "Delete files" and "Reset home page".

[*]Post back a fresh Hijackthis log.

The only additional ones are classified as "Optional" to delete as they are resource hogs:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

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

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

 

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.
