      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.

Ok, since you have no updates, no anti-virus, no firewall, that leaves you volnerable and your lucky you only have these few infections.


Let's start here:


To eliminate go to regedit in start--run--type-- regedit--once in regedit ---goto--

edit-- find and type the the last part of the solongas address---example---hp.htm?id=80----

then click find---- and once in the folder found probably in internet explorer- main

folder-- then look for solongas address and delete only these malicious addresses

let me know if that worked

Then we will work on the rest of it lol

YUP AVG is free and so is ZONEALARM :)






Download and install-


SpywareBlaster will block bad ActiveX and malevolent cookies. http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html


IE-SPYAD puts over 4000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.



Both are very small free programs that you run once, then again, you know this and then just occasionally to check for updates.

I highly recommend toolbar.google.com - you get a great popup blocker as well as very convenient search.



might want to post one last log to make sure youa re clean since you did have other things that needed fixing in that log :)
