      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.

urpo.exe and other malware...

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

Despite having Ad-aware and ZoneAlarm, I suffered a full-scale spyware assault yesterday and some nasty characters made beachheads on my PC. I ran CWShredder and Spybot and I was able to get rid of CWS (I think), but I now realize that I have another ill-intentioned executable on my PC: urpo.exe

 

I was wondering:

 

(1) What is the best way of treating urpo.exe? Simply deleting it? I also have a file named URPO.EXE-07A1E146.pf , which I assume I need to address as well.

 

(2) The following is my HijackThis log. I'd be very grateful if someone could tell me if there are other problematic files/ how I should address these?

 

(3) Is there anything else I should do? [i have downloaded Windows XP Service Pack 1.a]

Hi,

First thing to do is ...

 

Reconfigure Windows Explorer to show Hidden Files:

Open the Windows Explorer 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.

 

Important! Create a folder via Windows Explorer for HijackThis, then move the file (HijackThis.exe) to that folder. This way any backups created are saved in a legit folder.

 

Close all open windows, except for HijackThis place a check in each of the following:

Then click "Fix checked".

 

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Ncao] C:\Documents and Settings\AD\Application Data\urpo.exe

O4 - Global Startup: PGPtray.lnk = ?

O16 - DPF: {11120607-1001-1111-1000-110199901123} - ms-its:mhtml:file://C:\foo.mht!http://81.211.105.37/20609/online.chm::/on-line.exe

O16 - DPF: {9EB320CE-BE1D-4304-A081-4B4665414BEF} (MediaTicketsInstaller Control) - http://www.mt-download.com/MediaTicketsInstaller.cab

 

Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode (see "How To" below)

 

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

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

 

Locate and delete the following:

 

C:\Documents and Settings\AD\Application Data\urpo.exe <--this file

URPO.EXE-07A1E146.pf <--this file

 

Restart normally and then ...

 

Reconfigure Ad-Aware for Full Scan:

Please update the reference file following the instructions here:

http://www.lavahelp.com/howto/updref/index.html

 

Launch the program, and click on the Gear at the top of the start screen.

 

Click the "Scanning" button.

Under Drives & Folders, select "Scan within Archives".

Click "Click here to select Drives + folders" and select your installed hard drives.

 

Under Memory & Registry, select all options.

Click the "Advanced" button.

Under "Log-file detail", select all options.

Click the "Tweaks" button.

 

Under "Scanning Engine", select the following:

"Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile" and

"Unload recognized processes during scanning."

Under "Cleaning Engine", select the following:

"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Click on 'Proceed' to save these Preferences.

Please make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning before you proceed.

 

After the above post a fresh log ...

Hi WinHelp,

 

Thanks for your very detailed response. I carried out your instructions to the letter (all except for deleting: 04 - Global Startup: PGPtray.lnk = ? ; I think this item is tied to the PGP encryption software I have on my PC).

 

Removal of urpo.exe seems to have been successful. Please find below the new HijackThis logfile. Curiously, Ad-aware appears to detect more items than previously, which gives the unsettling impression that the problems are actually mutliplying. :wtf:

 

Thanks again for any further assistance you can provide, I greatly appreciate it :thumbsup::wave:

Hi,

Your log is clean now ... good job!

(all except for deleting: 04 - Global Startup: PGPtray.lnk = ?

The "?" indicates a broken link, thus the removal ...

Ad-aware appears to detect more items than previously

That's why I had you "reconfigure AWW" :cool:

 

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

See section: How To: Prevent this from happening again?
