      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.

Hi,

First, I want to state that I have used all prescribed spyware removal tools adaware, spybot, spysweeper, CWShredder, HJT.

 

List of troubles in my computer:

 

1) One day I saw a mysearch toolbar on my IE, whcih made the computer very slow. I removed it using "Add/Remove programs". This removed the toolbar, but still in IE Favorites, an empty folder named "Links" gets created evrytime I open IE. Any solution to this?

 

2) Then used HJT to clean up the HJT scan as prescrined on spywareinfo.com website.

 

3) I had kazaa installed for some time on my PC. I read and found that it was security threat. So I downloaded kazaabegone from spywareinfo.com and cleaned it. But seems not all of it was removed. I still saw "P2pnetworking" and "altnet points" processes on my PC. So I removed the p2pnetworking and altnet folders in ProgramFiles folder on my PC. But the PC is still very slow. I checked the processes and found that alg.exe and many svchost.exe processes are running on my computer. Though their CPU usage is low (1%), they may be making the computer slower. I read and found that though they are not spyware , they may be providing backdoor entry to spyware. Soluton?

My computer is clearly much slower than usual.

 

4) When I open realOneplayer on my computer, it goes to "http://guide.real.com/?" and then pop windows opens multiple times saying "Error: Do you wish to debug: Property: Line number.... blah blah blah.."

Any help?

 

My HJT log at the end of the mail.

Help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Could the group moderator or people who help out with problems with spyware can look into my issues as mentioned above long ago, or do I post the problems in a new thread...

 

Thanks.

 

Sumit
