      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.

  1. Download reglite
  2. install "Reglite" and run it, enter HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\ into the address bar.
  3. Double click on AppInit_DLLs to open a "Data Editor" properties window, if the bottom textfield named "Value" contains a .dll file; then this is the hidden file you need to get rid off.
  4. You should not be able to delete this file if you try to clear the value field, IMPORTANT: take note of the path and name of the .dll file. Write it down so you do not forget it.
  5. Rename the Folder "Windows" (This is a purple "highlighted" folder in the left hand window) to NOTWINDOWS. Simply click on the folder, click on "Edit" in the menu bar and select "Rename".
  6. Click AppInit_DLLs again and clear the value containing the .dll and ok it. This should have removed the .dll
  7. Rename the windows folder back to its original name "Windows".
  8. Run SpyBot, Ad-Aware and CWShredder
  9. Check the following three links for instructions on downloading and running the applications listed:

[*]Next step will be to remove this dll file so make sure you have it noted down.

[*]Procedure 1

  • Download KillBox
  • Unzip and start the application
  • Paste in the dir <path and name of dll as found in the appinit value box> e.g. C:\Windows\System32\nameofdll.dll
  • Menu Select Action => Delete on Reboot
  • Select File => Add file <It should add the path automatically>
  • <Same Window> Select Action => Process and Reboot

[*]Procedure 2 (If Procedure 1 did not work)

  • Click "Start" => "Run" and type in "cmd" (Without the quotations) and click on "Okay".
  • This will open a command window I will assume you have a basic knowledge of DOS if you have any problems at this point just write back I will outline the commands.
  • Type in dir <path and name of dll as found in the appinit value box> and press "Enter". You should see the name of the file listed.
  • Go to the system32 folder (This is where the .dll file will typically reside) and type attrib -R "nameofdll".dll
  • Carry out Procedure 1 again

[*]Restart your computer in safemode (How do I boot into "Safe" mode?)

[*]Open cmd window again as before

[*]Type dir <path and name of dll as found in the appinit value box> and locate the dll name the dll should now have been removed and will not be listed.

[*]While in safe mode, run the 3 ad-removal programs again, just to make sure all traces are gone.

[*]Boot up pc as normal and you should be trouble free - Please post anothe log once you are done so that we can review it further.

Only two I would still delete:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = about:blank

 

Other than that - Looking good :)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.
