Preferred Solution: I have National Zoom in internet explorer. I can't remove it. Help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi siminu2,
 
Run these for me:
 
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
Click on the Scan button.
AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
Click on the Clean button.
Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.
 
-----------
  Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
Important!! When you save the mbam-setup file, rename it to something random (such as 123abc.exe) before beginning the download.
Double-click on the renamed file to install, then follow these instructions
for doing a Quick Scan in normal mode.
Don't forget to check for database definition updates through the program's interface (preferable method) before scanning.
If you cannot update Malwarebytes or use the Internet to download any files to the infected computer, manually update the database by following the instructions in FAQ Section A: 4. Issues
Malwarebytes may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
After completing the scan, a log report will open in Notepad.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab .
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
Exit Malwarebytes when done.
Note: If Malwarebytes encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes from removing all the malware.

Now this is really doing my head in. The regular zoom setting for Internet explorer is 100%, but I find the screen?s way too small at those settings for me to read the text properly. The best setting for me is 200%, but the thing keeps on resetting itself back to 100% forcing me to keep on going back to put it back to 200% again. Is there any way to lock the zoom settings to what I want rather than having to keep on resetting it?

To use IE8 zoom, add it to the command bar using 'customize'.

Each click (2) zooms then the third resets back to normal.

Still too small? Start with Text Size larger (customize again).

i'm interested in shopping stores using the store's internet web sites(such as sears,target's,kmart's,home depot,etc.).

many require credit cards to make a purchase and if your familiar with my earlier post using credit cards over the internet, i don't.

most stores now carry these prepaid store cards: you place a certain amount on a store card and use it like cash. Kmart calls them Kmart Cash Card i believe.

does anyone know of a store that will accept these cards at thier web sites instead of credit cards?? the store clerks i have asked are not sure themselves

Hello sharky,

Many banks now offer what's known as a "MasterMoney Card". This card is actually a debit card that can be used just like a Master Card. In other words, you can use it as a CREDIT card and not have to enter a PIN # or you can use it as a DEBIT card where you will have to enter a PIN #. The beauty of this is that funds come from a checking account and there is generally no fees charged by your bank to use it. Of course you don't pay any interest either.

Here's what I did. I opened seperate checking account at my bank, which offers this card as well as on line banking, and requested a card for that account. (I named it "My name---CCC (Checking Credit Card) account Now, when I wish to order something online or make other purchases that I don't want to put on one of my "Traditional" credit cards, I use the MasterMoney card instead. All I do is keep a small amount of funds in this account to cover any purchases I make with the card. In fact, I have never written a check from this account. If I want to purchase something with the card that would necessitate having more funds than I have in the account, I simply go on line with the bank and transfer the needed funds from another account to the "Credit Card" account before I make the purchase.

Even if someone was to steal my card or card number and try to use it, my losses would be minimum, if any, because of the amount of money I keep in the account.

I own a laptop with XP Pro installed. The laptop was purchased with XP Pro pre-installed and do not have the XP install disk. I downloaded Explorer 7 and hated it. I then went to add/remove programs and uninstalled it. Since that time I constantly receive error messages when I click on a website saying, "Explorer has encountered a problem and must close". I then have three options, debug, send error report, and don't send. After selecting any of them I am brought back to my desktop and have to start all over again. I never had this problem before downloading Explorer 7. There appears to be a conflict with Explorer 6 and 7. What I would like to do is a repair of Explorer 6 or a complete reinstall of Explorer 6. Before doing this I would like to remove all remnants of Explorer 7 from the laptop first. Please bear in mind I do not have the XP install disk. I can assure you the laptop is virus free and all junk files have been removed. I even ran CHKDSK with zero results.

Hi everyone,

I'm having problems removing Internet explorer from an older XP machine. I've done the uninstall portion using an external utility but when I delete the program files folder it just reappears after a restart.

The reason I had to uninstall it is because it would close moments after opening or just freeze up and present a not responding error. So I decided a fresh install would be best, but the uninstall wasn't working so I used third party software. Now here I am. Any thoughts/help is appreciated.

Thanks for looking!

A:Internet Explorer - cannot fully remove

You cannot uninstall Internet Explorer, at least not very easily, because it is a part of the Windows OS. Doing so will make your Windows unstable. What Version of IE do you have? IE 8, 7 or 6?
You can Roll back IE to an older version and then reinstall the newer version. In Add Remove programs scroll down to Windows Internet Explorer. Here you can Uninstall it, which would Roll Back to the older version (eg) if you have IE7 and Uninstalled it, after reboot, you would have IE6.
Then download IE8 and install it. Download Internet Explorer 8 from Official Microsoft Download Center

I would highly recomend against removing Internet Explorer. It is integrated into Windows, and is needed for many things such as Windows Update, even if you don't actually open a window. If you like FireFox, thats OK to not open up IE, but please don't attempt to remove it. BTW, Add/Remove Windows Components will not actually remove Internet Explorer.

My secretary liked to surf the internet on her lunch hour and everyday at the end of the day, she would launch internet explorer>tools> internet options> and delete the history. Our IT department made a change and now the delete button is grayed out. She really hasn't been going to obscene sites or anything, (more like the history channel site, etc...) but we do have a policy not to use work computers for personal use.
I told her not to worry but she's panicking and wants the history deleted. I would have just asked the IT department but she doesn't want to do that. Is there a way to delete the history either through dos or windows explorer???

I told her I'd post the question here and let her know what I find out. We do not have administrator privilages so I don't think we can change the permissions to allow the history to be deleted like she used to do. Any suggestions???

A:Why cant I remove internet explorer from my computer?

IE is integrated with Windows, you cannot remove it. It is needed for various functions of Windows itself.

Opera is a very safe browser. Actually, there are fewer exploits found in Opera compared to even Firefox. You can use Opera or Firefox, both are great browsers. One advantage of using Firefox is that you can download addons of many types.

Two days ago, I suddenly found I could not access the internet on either my old desktop computer running IE7 nor my newer laptop running IE8. The high speed modem is connected to the desktop, and the laptop connects through a router connected to the modem. Programs not online worked fine.

Here's what I tried: Rebooting, turning the modem off and then on, restoring the system to an earlier date, running virus scans, using safe mode, and finally calling Embarq. I listened to their recorded advice, and followed it, which mostly consisted on turning the modem and router on and off in a particular order. The laptop returned to normal, but the desktop did not.

I then called Embarq and stayed on the line until I got a technician. I told him my desktop would not open I.E. nor any program that required it. I might see the opening page flash on and off once, then disappear. I. know the computer's online, because Outlook Express works and the laptop works. This is where things stand now.

The tech could not solve the problem, which he thought might be that I.E. is corrupted and should be uninstalled. I've tried everything I know and can't remove it. I've used the add/remove program on the control panel, it won't do it. The Internet Options on the control panel just flashes and won't open. What can I do?

When opened notepad or Internet explorer and i tried to zoom-in and zoom-out it is zooming-in but as per my requirement i need to disable this feature. I have tried the following things but didn't work:

In Run dialog box, type gpedit.msc and
hit enter.


Now navigate to: Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Edge
UI


On the right hand pane double click on Allow
Edge Swipe.


Set the policy to Disabled.


Restart the PC

3. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\ZOOM] \ ZoomDisabled =1
4. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Zoom] "ZoomDisabled"=dword:00000001

Is there anyone has an idea how to disable this feature in windows 10?

It would be great if someone helps me out.

Last week, I downloaded a game but it put several other "programs" on my computer which were a real pain. Using Malwarebytes, I removed the programs and my computer is now pretty much back to normal.
 
However, something else that found its way onto my computer are proxy settings for each browser, basically preventing me from accessing the Internet. With Firefox, this wasn't too much of a problem because I just un-checked the Proxy settings and I can now use it again (I am using Firefox to type this thread).
 
However, unchecking the proxy settings makes absolutely no difference with Internet Explorer because it just "checks" iself again straight away. So I go to Internet Options --> Connections --> LAN settings --> uncheck proxy server and then click "OK".
 
Then as soon as I go back to LAN settings, proxy server is checked again. It is an endless loop that cannot be solved simply by unchecking the proxy server box. There is something more sinister at play here.
 
Anyone know how I can go about finding out the cause of this problem and rectifying it?
 
Thanks.

A:Proxy Settings are Preventing me from Using Internet Explorer - How to Remove?

Hello MarcusFenix -

So I go to Internet Options --> Connections --> LAN settings --> uncheck proxy server and then click "OK".

Do you complete this by ticking the Top Left Box (Automatically Detect Settings) then click APPLY and then OK > OK to exit the area ??
 
If you just untick the Proxy and click OK it will not APPLY or stay unticked.
 
Just an observation on the way you have written it.
 
If you think it is Malware related, we can also look at that ..........

Sorry guys, I realized I should have posted HijackedThis logs on another page.Below is the link where I reposted my problem...http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/290285/annot-delete-internet-explorer-8-due-to-permission/Thanks ^^

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Hi all,

Got a problem with using SYSPREP.

I tidy up all my Start menu items prior to sysprep, but after sysprep has run, and an end user logs in, they are getting an extra folder and item in the Start Menu...

It is Accessories - System Tools - Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

This appears for every user that logs in, is there anyway of removing this permanently? It only appeared after sysprep, so any ideas if I can use a regfix prior to sysprepping or Group policy to remove it???

Thanks

All items are checked in CCleaner which is the latest version. Ran it numerous times without success.
I always delete IE junk from "Internet Options" first, then use CCleaner to mop up. I have never used IE on my system.
Any suggestions ?

Hi, I have been having some disturbing problems with my computer recently. After running a Spy Sweeper virus scan, I discovered a Trojan/Zlob virus which I thought I took care of by removing. Now, I am having troubles with my Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers, as they will randomly decide to not load anything at all or only after hitting refresh at least 20 times. Typing in a URL takes ages and 3 times so farnone of my browsers were working and when i closed the browser window my computer immediately bluescreened and crashed. When I start Windows back up and report the error, I get a report saying it is caused by an unknown driver. I looked into my Add/Remove list and found Internet Explorer Security plugin 2006 and Internet Security Addon, whihc I thought were suspicious. I googled them and found that they were indeed malware caused by the Trojan/Zlob and I read that removing is in the Add/Remove list would not solve the problem. I dont know what else there may be on my computer, but I performed each step as reccomended in the prep guide for posting a hijackThis log file and I am still having these problems.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer forum. We are currently studying your log and will have instructions for you shortly. Thank you for your patience.HijackThis is an analysis AND a repair tool. When you fix something in HijackThis, you are deleting a bad entry in the Windows Registry. In case of a mistake being made, there is a reversal for line entry deletions. HijackThis creates a new file which is a backup log of changes and you can reverse the line entry deletion. BUT...HijackThis needs a safe folder to keep these critical backup logs and a temp folder is definitely not safe as you might run Disk Cleanup and delete them. Please place HJT into ITS OWN PERMANANT FOLDER. You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e). Double click on C: If the folder is hidden, click on show the contents of this folder. Right-click on a blank space in the right column and select New > Folder Name it HJT (C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe Move HijackThis.exe into this folder. When you run HijackThis.exe from the C:\HJT folder and have it Fixed checked, it will create a backup file of modifications to use which are easily accessible if restoring any files is necessary.

I have a damaged install of Outlook Express that I am unable to repair. I've tried to reinstall, but am unable to do so. I've tried rolling back Internet Explorer 7 to 6, but am still unable to reinstall OE. I have an IE6 setup file, but it cancels out after reporting that I already have this version.

Is there any way to remove all traces of IE and all versions of OE to start fresh?

Hi
 
For a couple of weeks now I have had this annoying popup that occurs possibly once every couple of hours. It will either open a new instance of internet explorer (default browser) or open up a new tab. The content of these webpages are advertisements. From casinos, people's online videos, and I've even had one direct to apple products!
 
I have ran several anti-virus software, all with the most recent updates. I have even ran things like HiJackThis and ComboFix with no luck either. Everything says my computer is clean, yet the popups continue.
 
My computer has been virus free for years now, so this is quite a surprise for me. Here is the DDS log:

Hello everyone,
Management has finally given the go-ahead to upgrade our end-users from IE 9 to 11. There major caveat mentioned is that they want the 64-bit shortcut to IE11 removed from the Start Menu. The reason is that we have a few proprietary applications that will
only function using a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer. 
To avoid a flood of support calls, I'd like to automate this process. I'd rather be proactive than reactive in this scenario. Previously, we've done this manually on a user basis (meaning, we image a computer, remove the link after, deploy). However, re-imaging
every computer in the company is not option, as we simply don't have the 1) time and 2) personnel to accomplish this task.
We're using Windows 7 Professional x64 and will be using Desktop Central ManageEngine to deploy the the upgrade. We've tested and it looks good - we can push the prerequisite patches and the new executable without any issue...save the fact that none of my
scripts have been able to successfully remove the 64-bit IE 11 shortcut.
Has anyone ever been in this situation before? If so, any suggestions? 
Thanks!
Alex
