      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.

Broken TCP/IP stack...

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys-- can anyone link to me or give me some clues as to what this little utitility I'm seeking is-- bascially some spyware can infect/adjust your tcp/ip stack somehow and my bud's computer (which I don't have access to right now) has this problem, wanted to throw the software on a disk and try it out.. I believe the program begins with the letter L

 

Sorry to be so osbcure!

 

Thanks

I think what your referring to is the winsock LSP connection that is hijacked by spyware to connect to the internet and report back their spy data. In that case they add their own winsock.dll file which if it becomes corrupted or deleted you lose your internet connection,

 

The program fix for that situation is:

LSPFIX.EXE Winsock Restore

 

Go to their website, see if that sounds familiar and download the appropriate fix for your version of windows,

The other side of this are the actual TCP/IP protocols which some internet software likes to fiddle with, or it has been corrupted and doesn't respond. If your OS is windows XP, you can reset the TCP protocols with this command;

 

Click the Start button, then elect 'run', now type netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

 

Search for c:\resetlog.txt to see what changes existed and make a note of it,

 

This will rewrite the TCP/IP registry keys.

 

If the computer is 95/98 you would have to reinstall the TCP/IP protocols: Reinstall TCP/IP Protocols

 

Hope this helps,

 

;)

Improper use of LspFix can destroy your internet connection.

Let's see what needs fixing.

 

Please do this.

Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe

Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

 

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.

Press that, save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

Sorry for the late late late reply, basically I wanted to use the program to see if it would prevent what we ended up doing anyways: reinstalling windows because of corrupt files. Unfortunately it wasn't from adware/spyware so it couldn't be prevented.

 

I appreciate your help though!

But damn I didn't mean to bump the post.. oh well I have a good reason though anyways-- I'm looking for a program I saw linked on here that is similar to process explorer in nature but is actually designed with spyware in mind, it tries to find programs that have hidden rogue executables hiding behind them in memory...

 

any takers?
