Preferred Solution: internet explorer out of date pop-up : virus ?

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.)

Is there something I can do to add the day of week name to the dates that Explorer displays in folder > files details display ?

Instead of 9/23/2016 11:08 PM, I would like it to display Fri 9/23/2016 11:08 PM

Even better would be Fri 23/Sep/2016 11:08 PM

Maybe I am asking too much, but it would be nice.

Thanks for reading.
 

A:Date Display in Internet Explorer

Yes, quite easily
This is in W8.1, but I am certain that it is the same in all other systems

first go to control panel & select language / then change date / time //number

set long date to bottom option. dddd dd MMM yyyy

Then select additional settings & select the date tab
in the short date box add dddd, to the start of the line & press apply, OK & exit out and when you next open explorer , you will have the entire date shown in all its glory

If you are updated to ie6 sp1, no problem. If you aren't I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to update now.

For the past month or two my computer has gotten progressively worst. To start I have been running an up to date virus protection and I have not gotten any errors since I installed the program at least one year ago.

On a daily basis, the computer will continually drop internet service. In a one hour period of browsing the internet the computer will disconnect 8 to 10 times. Sometimes it will come back within 5 minutes, other times you will have to walk away from the computer and let it sit for an hour or so. Restarting the computer seems to help on a few occasions, but I have also seenthe computer fail to connect to internet service for up to one hour after rbooting the computer. I have run Spybot, but everything checks outs just fine after the program is completed.

I first thought the problem was the internet connection but when the computer acts up and disconnects, I can turn on any other computer in the house and get a solid, smooth running internet connection everytime.

The problem is to the point where browsing the internet is practically impossible.

When I get on websites, when typing, the text will not appear until I stop typing. Microsoft Outlook crashes on a daily basis and I have pratcially had to stop using Outlook to pull my web mail because the program fails to connect to the incoming POP server.

How do i get rid of this virus (or any other virus that may be causing problems on my computer)? About 2-3 weeks ago, I keep receiving the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." I scanned my computer using Microsoft Security Essentials to see if there was a virus and found out that there was one by the name of win32/sirefef. I also needed to update Microsoft Security Essentials, but when i tried to do that, the update couldn't complete because I "wasn't connected to the Internet." I'm sure I'm connected because I'm sharing the connection with another computer and it works fine.

I went to Microsoft's article "prevent and remove viruses and other malware" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/129972/en-us) and followed the steps. One of the steps was to reset the Internet Proxy settings in order for me to download/install things that I needed, and so I manually reset it myself (since I couldn't run the "fix it for me program"). After I did this, the message still pops up. What can I do now? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The infected computer is a Windows XP, and I'm currently using another PC since the infected computer cannot access the Internet.

So my friend dropped off his laptop which seems to have some sort of horrible virus on it. Everytime you open internet explorer it closes after around 8 seconds, sometimes if your lucky enough to type something in the address bar another instance of internet explorer will open and both will freeze.

I've disabled everything at startup via msconfig > startup , disabled all add-ons, disable third party stuff, cleared all temp files still to no avail.

In the processes tab of task manager theres always this wierd random filename, like f84thg38gy39.exe :\

Now here's the really annoying thing, in safe mode i go to open internet explorer, I get happy because it doesn't close, but when i search something in google / visit a website it freezes and another internet explorer opens and freezes. I look at processes and see that random filename, still in safe mode

Now I cant download anything like firefox / anti virus because IE wont work, im typing this from my other PC.

Any ideas!?!?!?!?

Dell has helped me run several checks on my laptop hardware to see it is the source of my problem. All scans came back clean, suggesting that I have a problem with Internet Explorer itself. My computer shows that it is online and connected, but the browser is not functioning, despite several checks and manipulations of the settings. It was suggested to me that the problem is possibly a virus or trojan. I have already run several adaware scans, which have not turned up much, but I can't get through an entire Mcafee virus scan, despite letting it run overnight! I'm sure that I need to beef up security on my computer, but I can't download any new anti-virus definitions as long as I can't open my browser. I am sending this message from a work computer. Is there any way to correct this problem without backing up my whole computer and re-installing XP?

Thank You for your help.

Hey Guys,

Ok, hopefully someone has encountered this problem. The problem is mainly with IE. When I open up IE, it displays fine. When I'm typing in the search box, the Cap Locks automatically come on. The light on the keyboard for Caps doesn't come on but I'm typing in upper case during the sentence. Also, while I'm typing - the window deactivates - - meaning the blue bar at the top of IE window is now gray where I have to click on it to activate that window. This happens all the time. It seems to be some kind of virus but how to remove it is the problem. To see if this fixes the problem, i upgraded from 2000 to XP but same problem. I also tried Ad-Ware and it keeps removing these things but the problem persists. I tried the online free McCafee virus scan but it did not find anything. Also, at tims I get a message saying, IE cannot open this website, operation aborted where the website is in the background. Anyone help!?!

Hello al.

I think i need your help, because i can't solve the problem myself.

The problem started a week ago. I am always using FireFox as my webbrowser, and just out of nothing my Internet Eplorer showed up on a strange site. Just clicked away Internet Explorer. Later on that day i needed to go to my task manager, and i saw 2 times a proces of Internet Explorer (Using a big amount of the memory, with doing nothing ?). I wanted tot end those proceses, but just when you ended that prcoes, they start up again. Sometimes they stay away, but when i reboot my Pc, they are back again, and the internet explorer keeps coming on my screen.

I used my anti-virus (MC Afee) , he found 3 infected items, solved the problem, but the problem is still there :(

Can someone tell me what to do ?

Hello and welcome to TSF.

You did not mention what operating system this is, but I gather from your profile that it's Windows 7.

Windows 7 has a very robust System Restore. Have you tried invoking System Restore? You can access System Restore from the Advanced Options menu by pressing F8 during startup, selecting Repair Your Computer from that menu, select the keyboard layout, then choose System Restore from the System Recovery Options screen which appears. Choose a restore point before the issue arose.

I am not able to go on certain sites (primarily youtube) without my internet explorer crashing. I get the internet explorer is not responding notification, it closes and reopens the tab, then repeats.

I can easily just use chrome but thats not fixing the underlying problem.

Before, the same thing was happening with Hotmail/Windows Live.

I've scanned with malwarebytes but found nothing.

Does anyone know what it might be?

A few days ago my internet explorer 7 was infected by a virus, I have read that there is a new virus / worm infecting IE7. I had almost no control over IE7 and I was getting this "Antivirus 2009" pop up telling me I was infected and needed to download thier program. I did not bite on this fake advertisement but this is where my problems started.

After reading several posts on this and other web sites I was finally able to uninstall IE7. I have some control back and my computer is not locking up almost immedaitely after I start up. I know there is still something wrong. I have been trying to install Mozilla Firefox but it is being blocked from starting up so I have uninstalled it. My screen has a momentary flash or "hicup" on occasion usually when doing someithing with any antivirus software and sometimes when using IE. I am now using IE6.

Here is what I am using: IE6

Last nite in the middle of something, a screen opened up that said that Internet Explorer has detected 4 viruses on my computer that could destroy my machine.
There was a "click here to fix" button. I look the page over and figure it for total rubbish and try to close it out..
It would not close. Everytime I hit the red x, a small window opened up saying are you sure you want to cancel?
I finally had to shut down to get that page to go away. I rebooted and did a complete malwares scan. There was no problem...
The list of viruses it said I had were:

adware.win32.winpd
ADVWare.hotbar
trojan-PSW.win32.I.dpinch.adm
trojan horse IRC/backdoor.sdbot4.FRV

I went to file search and typed in those files and nothing came up...

I imagine that if I had clicked on "FIX" - then I would have gotten the viruses..

Hello,

I have recently been having some trouble with Malware on my computer. I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on my computer in Safe Mode, which cleaned up some of the infections. Unfortunately, there are still viruses remaining. I booted up my computer and noticed that I still had a problem with a virus that disguised itself by the name of 'Data Protection.'

To make matters worse, Internet Explorer has stopped working for me. When I click on Internet Explorer, the webpage says: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." Fortunately, I can still use Mozilla Firefox (which proves that it is not a connection issue, since I can still connect to the Internet). I am really struggling to find out where to go from here. Oh, and I also noticed that something is preventing me from using regedit. When I type regedit in the Run box from the Start menu, it says: "Another program is currently using this file."

I ran a scan with hijackthis and saved the log file, since the information will likely be useful. I have not yet checked or fixed anything that it has found, since I wanted to check on here first.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post! I appreciate any help you can offer.

EDIT: I think the Hijackthis log is too long to post on here... It isn't letting me post it.

The problems started when I tried to update Firefox. Firefox installed, with no indication of a problem. I then went to run it and noticed that all the links and shortcuts to it had disappeared. I opened IE to download it again and found that while it goes through all the motions of downloading and installing, the Mozilla folder has nothing executable inside of it. (Yes, all of those folders are empty.)I've also tried downloading Chrome with the same results.I'm also finding that anything I install instantly vanishes. Though, vanishes isn't really the right word- more like was never there in the first place.I cannot do a system restore.I cannot delete certain files.I can only run IE.I cannot open many of my game files.I have run Spybot, but my computer will not quarintine the files.I have a hijack this log if this will help you to help me.I know that the rule is one problem per post, but I'm pretty sure all of these problems have the same origin.Edit: Moved topic from Vista to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hello guys I could really use your help.

I caught a nasty virus a couple of days ago, I've successfully removed most of it to the point that I'm not noticing any activity apart from one thing.

The virus is preventing Avira from updating, I've done some research and it appears that the virus is preventing the updates by using a proxy server in internet explorer (this makes no sense to me so feel free to correct me ). Usually in this situation I just go into the settings and return the server to the default, but in this case it has greyed out this option. I figured it would do this through IE restrictions in the registry so I tried to change that but its hidden it from me. I guessed there was a rootkit involved so I ran sophos anti-rootkit which found a suspicious temp file in internet explorer, I deleted it but on restart it had returned, I pretty sure this is part of the problem.

So here is my uneducated guess as to how this virus is running. A rootkit is changing internet explorer settings and hiding files from me. I can delete this rootkit but its effects are still felt, when I restart, the virus (which is likely hidden by the rootkit in the first place) returns the rootkit to the temp files and the whole process starts again.

I hope you guys can help me with this problem, it's driving me crazy. Forgive me if I am hard to understand, English is not my first language.

I'm running Windows XP (Home) on my laptop. Suddenly, I can't launch Internet Explorer (and even though I can sign onto AOL, as soon as I try to click on a link or anything else it freezes up). I'm suspecting this is residual damage from a virus because when I ran my virus program (Avast) it said it detected a worm (Win32ybac, which I searched for into on and found nothing) I was unable to save it to the chest (which I guess is quarantining it) so I deleted it. After running Norton (from another computer on my home network) and Avast (as well as McAfee) I haven't found any traces of virus. When I try to launch IE I get the box that says IE encountered a problem and needs to close. Send Report, etc. If I go to my Start menu and click on Update Windows, it launches IE and I can go anywhere I want. Of interest is: during the past week I've experienced my IE spontaneously closing on me a couple of times, my Avast won't connect to automatically update, and when starting my computer I've gotten the following message a few times: alg.exe - Application Error The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate the program.

I did see some things on-line suggesting that the alg.exe can be affected by viruses and worms, and the registry could be affected.

While browsing internet explorer (windows xp), I hit my home button to return to Yahoo. However, I was directed to a search engine called Nowfind.net. Once it brought me there, I have not been able to use internet explorer to browse the net. Every URL typed simply redirects me back to the nowfind.net. I did not download anything or save any files to my PC, so I dont know how it got into my system, but it has. To post this thread I am using Netscape on the same computer thats having the issue, and Netscape seems to be working fine. Any help?

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

I have just discovered my Internet Explorer has been invaded by a virus. Going to Internet Options/Security/Restricted section and pressing the 'Sites' button I now have a long (and growing!) list of rather nasty looking sites. With a lot of patience I managed to delete the majority, but a stubborn few still remain. (Moreover the list seems to start growing again the next time I surf) . Hitherto this section has always been empty of entries. I will be extremely grateful if anyone can suggest a remedy that might cleanse my system again.
I suppose I have been lucky up to now and not experienced this problem before, so dont really know where to start. All I have tried is running Spybot (and I have AVG and Zone Alarm Firewall installed) but it hasn't made any difference.

Hello,
 
I've been having this problem for a couple of days now. Whenever I go to certain sites (particularly yahoo.com and youtube), Internet Explorer gets redirected to ad-g.doubleclick.net and then fails to load (Canoot load webpage). I don't really know hw to get rid of this as MBAM does not report anything that I'm not already aware of (what it detects aren't false-positives technically but I use them on a regular basis so I know they're not a problem. On a side note, I may or may not have installed a fake flash update. I clicked it on accident when a video was loading but Windows told me that it failed to install and it does not exist as a process or program according to Task manager and Add/Remove Programs respectively.
 
Chrome loads these sites fine, so it is just an IE10 issue for now, and yes, all updates have been installed.
 
Browser: IE10
OS: Windows 8
 
If anyone could help it'd be greatly appreciated.

A:Internet Explorer Problem or Virus?

Hi, Welcome to TSG!! Let's check for a virus.
Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
