      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.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Yep, I got it too. hijacked by html#96676

5 posts in this topic

I've done 5 hours of work trying to remove this puppy to no avail. of course, I've read through the FAQ first, as well as the default Hijacked article, which provided no results from this particular problem. I've run my updated spybot and adaware programs, in addition to stinger, The Cleaner, AVG antivirus, and Trend Micro internet security.

 

This maleware:

 

:grrr: Randomly links words like "computer" and "spybot" with a "Goto:computer" remark at the bottom of the screen, an takes me to the built in "search engine" the maleware has installed

 

:grrr: Randomly opens pop up ads with the title "only the best"

 

:grrr: Randomly opens up it's own search engine when searching for terms on google

 

:grrr: Creates an annoying toolbar that can't be removed at the top of IE's browser

 

:grrr: Makes it impossible to use Trend Micro's housecall online scanner, it shuts down IE after it tries to install.

 

:grrr: Reinstates the page .../html#96676 as the startup page.

 

Here's a look at my up to date Hijackthis log

Thanks for looking!

 

Edit: A special note, I have tried to find

 

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\*.dll/sp.html#96676

 

and have found that same dll in the windows directory and have removed it. Upon removal and reopening of IE, it randomly chooses 5 letters for a new .dll and reinstalls itself.

I got that same darned thing and it is driving my up the wall!

 

the only real difference that I see between mine and yours is that my res:// redirects are to a different dll file.

I have tried the solution steps listed in this post

 

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?showtopic=7447

 

And I am still experiencing the virus coming back. It's like RD's problem, this thing makes so many files, it's impossible to check every one to see if it is a legit file or not. 8 hours down the hole trying to figure this damn thing out, several safe mode deletes, cleans, only to have it return agian and again, with more and more files to try and find.

 

I'm going to sleep, this is a headache X_x;

Anyone else still having difficulty with this (After spending well over 5 hours trying to clear it with advice through the forums)?

 

It seems each time I try to delete it, it creates more and more files that I have to find and delete, so I've somewhat screwed myself by adding so many .dll's I have to try and find on my computer.

 

Question:

 

Should I just delete all DLLS and EXE files created after may 2004?? I may HAVE to go that route, I don't know what's legit and not legit anymore because there are so many files on my computer now. I have not made any major modifications to my computer since May, and as far as I know, no files created by this maleware predate may 2004.

 

thank you again for your time and effort, everyone working on this.
