      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.

Windows Installer keeps running -- hijack remnant?

4 posts in this topic

I was a victim of the res://***.html#96676 hijack. I've fixed the problem of having my homepage re-directed, but now everytime I open up an application or a new browser window, Windows Installer attempts to run and install Microsoft Frontpage. This started happening around the time of the hijack. Does anyone know how to stop this?

 

Here is my latest HijackThis log:

Hey Man,

 

I have a very similar problem. It took me days to fix the hijacking problem and now that its gone, my computer tries to install Windows Office XP Professional when I open an Internet Explorer browser. I'll let you know if I find a fix from someone. Good luck!

C:\WINDOWS\System32\msiexec.exe

That's the process that brings up the installer, I'm still trying to figure out how to get rid of it also.

It has been a long time since I've posted. Ever since I made the mistake of deleting the msiexec.exe file to get rid of the pesky Office XP Installer pop-up, I can't run Windows Installer now! Even after I replaced the msiexec.exe. It's really making me frustrated because I want to play Half-Life 2 but the Windows Installer doesn't work!

 

This is the error I get...
