      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.

Hijack This Log -- What to Fix?

8 posts in this topic

So I've been plagued by the @#$%#%^ Cool Web Search virus/horse and the CWShredder detected nothing, as did Avast.

 

Two questions:

1) I've switched to using Mozilla only as my browser; should I use IEradicator to get IE off my system entriely.

 

2) What files should I delete from the Hijack This log file below?

 

Thanks to my future hero.

Please create a new directory C:\HJT and move the HijackThis.exe file into that directory and only run it from there. That way we can ensure that we have the backup files aavilable in the event that they are needed.

 

How to Remove CoolWebSearch with CoolWeb Shredder <= Please click on this link for instructions on how to download and use CoolWebSearch Shredder which will help remove a CWS infection on your computer. Make sure you close all programs and windows before running it and be sure to click on the "Fix" button.

 

We need to remove a program called "Twain-Tec". To do this, first you need to disable System restore as per the instructions at here . Twiantec.dll is a transponder. HijackThis will detect it as a BHO but it must not be removed using HijackThis. This is because of the remaining registry entries and files which can be dangerous. Instead the following method of removal is preferable and complete:

Go to "Add/Remove Programs" => Uninstall "Twain-Tech". Reboot the computer to SAFE mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?. Delete twaintech.dll and twaintec.ini If twaintech.dll is in use, then you would need to rename it, reboot the computer, and then delete it.

 

Go into "Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall any of the following, if listed: "Bargain Buddy", "Save".

 

PLease download, install and run Tojan Hunter (Trial)

 

 

Run HijackThis and "Fix" the following:

Well, system's still running okay, but had to try IE again and wouldn't you know it, I got redirected to a, um, genitalia site touting virgins.

 

So something's still off. If (or, I should say, when) I finally get rid of this menace, any problem with running IEradicator and getting rid of Internet Explorer for good? Bad idea?

 

Thanks again, PGPhantom

OK, PGPhantom. Here's the latest Hijack This logfile. Looks good to me, but you're the expert here. Let me know if all's well.

 

And whatever they're paying you ain't enough.

 

Thanks again.

The only one I seemed to of missed which is still there is:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NAV Live Update] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\~2.EXE <= PLease delete this entry using HijackThis.

 

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.

 

As for paying me - I guess not enough of $0.00 is good :) I do this just to help - No reward, no pay ...:D
