      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.

Ready to Format--AAHHHHHH

4 posts in this topic

This is my third time typing this because my computer keeps locking up .

For the last four days I have been working constantly to get this wonderful computer of mine back on track. I am going to give the rundown and give it one more day before I format.

Here it goes>>


I have Norton and keep it updated and run it at least once a week.

About two weeks ago I started using Spybot S&D and AD AWARE both currnet versions. Last wed night I went to sleep while Spybot S&D was running.


This is when all HELL HIT!!!! I woke up to find some problems. I hit fix. My computer then began to run very very slowly and then I rebooted. After rebooting My active desktop went away. My homepage was set to About blank with search options & an address showing ezwizard or something close to that. I started getting tons of spyware popups. I started getting dll errors(kernel32.lzexpand, ver, 1phlpap1) and user.exe.

I began my self taught class on spyware and adware and have read everything I could find . I also read tons off of this website and Articles, FAQ's , links etc...

This is what I did:


I ran Spybot S&D in regular and safe mode. (checked for updates)It found some problems and fixed them but I still get DSomething exploit which i heard is in spybot and will be fixed soon. Nothing major other than that


I ran Ad Aware in regular and safe mode (checked for updates) It has 104 blocked items but seems to keep finding the same ones. This is where i first seen something to do with Cool WEbsearch so I got rid of it but it keeps finding more so


I ran CWShredder it found nothing


I ran Trojan Hunter it found only one thing ==it said it could not open an adobe 6 file .

I also ran LSP fix but it only found 4 or 5 things and said not to move them???/


I ran norton with updates about a million times and it finds nothing.


I have also checked my windows update and have none so I am good there too.


I then ran HJT which I stored correctly in its own file not a temp file. I ran it too in safe mode, after all of the other stuff. I am going to post my HJT log after this post because I keep locking up and want to get this up so I dont have to type again.


Please help or let me know if I should just format..........

I am ready to toss this thing out the window

THIS really sucks and I feel everyones pain and appreciate any advice or help that might come my way.


I will post HJT log next
