      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.

New BHO file

5 posts in this topic

Just trying to remove a particularly stubburn spyware program. I used HT and found this BHO file which wasn't listed online. Perhaps related to the spyware?

 

IECW32.dll

 

or C:\windows\system\iecw32.dll

 

Is this harmful or benign? Any thoughts?

 

 

To describe the spyware:

homepage is set to res://qhgyr.dll/index.html#96676

Its a bland page called "HOME SEARCH" with the windows symbol in the top left corner.

Pop-ups appear every minute or two.

Very annoying (aren't they all!) Can't be found by Spybot, Ad-aware, or Spyware Doctor.

A google search came up empty when I tried to find that O2 item... not good.

 

Looks like the home page problem needs a special fix. Could you post your HijackThis log here?

 

Have you removed anything with HijackThis yet?

I too got this nasty hijacker. I have run SB S&D, Spysweeper, Ad-AwarePro and HijackThis. Spysweeper found files associated with and deleted as did AAPro and HJT. But once the PC is restarted it returns. VERY frustrating. The only luck I've had is to use the AAPro Adwatch however it too is somewhat annoying because every 5 minutes or so I am asked to deny or accept the changes trying to be made. I anxiously await a solution. :whistle:

Hi,

 

Here is my attached log file.

 

Unfortunately, I have deleted some of the files through HT, however, they seem to have since respawned as most of them are back!!!!!

 

Thanks again for help,
