      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.

Generic3.USX (rttw.dll) - cant do system restore nor connect to inet

2 posts in this topic

Help, I am using a Compaq notebook with a Windows XP Media Center OS. When I booted it up this evening, my AVG alerted me that my machine had a Trojan virus Generic3.USX (path is in C:\Windows\system32\rttw.dll). I had it moved to the virus vault. I could not connect to the internet, and whenever I attempt to repair connection to wireless network, it said the address type is an an invalid IP address. I deleted the dll, then tried to do a system restore on several restore points but I was getting Restoration Incomplete after reboot, saying no files were changed. I searched the internet for "generic3.usx" and "rttw.dll" but found no results on either. I searched "generic3" and found this thread: http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=81287. I thought the solutions presented would help me, but when I ran haxfix, I only got the following:

Seems clean :( Maybe this is a new version of the virus? I checked the event logs and I have this error:


ERROR: Device Service Listener - UDP networking failed. Error code 0x8007277A.


Maybe that was why I couldnt connect to the internet? Before I got the virus alert, earlier in the day I was able to download my emails and found nothing suspicious. I'm not sure where I got this and I'm getting frustrated :( It affected my machine's ability to complete a system restore and to connect to wireless network.
