      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.

Cannot recover auto-search

7 posts in this topic

After removing spyware from a hijack with SpyBot S&D I seem to have removed the spyware but now my IE auto search will not work. I've already tried going through the web settings and restoring the auto search and default web settings but when I try to search...say...the word "spyware" by typing it into the address bar I get this: http:///?%20spyware

 

 

I dont know what else to do to restore it to where I can search just by typing words in the address bar. I used to use GoBack after a spybot sweep to revert to an earlier hard drive...but now my system seems to freeze if I try to use Goback (not sure if its because of the spyware or a bug or what).

 

 

I will also post the log of a HijackThis search in hopes that someone will have mercy on me and give me an answer that is not a default "try this spyware" answer that I keep getting over and over. I need a SPECIFIC answer about restoring auto search here please. :(

 

 

here's my log:

Reboot then find the following files and delete them.

 

c:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\A.EXE

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\xhofzo.exe

C:\WINDOWS\ALCHEM.exe

 

You could also fix this if you dident put restrcitions on your pc your self.

 

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

 

Can you open this file c:/windows/HOSTS.SAM in notepad and copy and paste whats in it here.

 

Then post a new log here in a reply.

Can you tell me what you mean by I could fix it myself if I didnt put restrictions on my pc? Id love to remove those restrictions so this wont happen again.
