      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.

Part of the FAQ that you read says to post your HijackThis log ...


Can you please download HijackThis from this link, install it into C:\HJT. Run it, click on scan, save log and please post your entire log here for analysis.

PGPhantom, I wasn't trying to jump into your post but that one caught my eye.



msblast.exe = W32/Lovsan.worm.a :alarm:

McAfee detects the dialer but not the above? hmm ... :whistle:


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.




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

Then click "Fix checked".


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [windows auto update] msblast.exe


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


Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:


c:program files/scom/dialers <--this folder

Note: I'm not sure what "scom" (folder) is?

msblast.exe <--this file -locate via Start | Search (if exists?)


Restart normally and then ...


"Flush System Restore" (see "How To" below)


Basically turn off System Restore, reboot, run a full (updated) McAfee scan, reboot and turn System Restore back on and create a new Restore Point.


Disabling System Restore (McAfee article)


How To: Scan for unwanted programs


After the above post a fresh log ...
