I remember installing a vgb file and it has posed a copy-paste problem


Recommended Posts

Hi,      :welcome:

My name is Maurice. I will be helping and guiding you, going forward on this case.

Let me know what first name you prefer to go by.

 

Please follow my directions as we go along.  Please do not do any changes on your own without first checking with me.

If you will be away for more than 3 consecutive days,  do try to let me know ahead of time, as much as possible.

 

Please only just attach   all report files, etc  that I ask for as we go along.

 


I would appreciate  getting some key details from this machine in order to help you forward.
 NOTE: The tools and the information obtained is safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system.

 

I would like to have you run a report tool known as FRST. This has no personal information. It is a well-known & widely used &safe.
FRST will help provide me with a list of installed programs and other information about your computer that will help me see if there are any other problems that are not being detected. Please follow the steps below to run FRST.


1: Please download FRST from the link below and save it to your desktop:

"Download link for 32-Bit version Windows"



"Download link for 64-Bit Version Windows"



Please wait and look toward the top or bottom of your browser for the option to Run or Save.
Click Save to save the file version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.


Run report with FRST

Right-click on FRST icon and select Run as Administrator to start the tool , and reply YES to allow it to proceed and run.
 

_Windows 8 or 10 users will be prompted about Windows *SmartScreen protection* - click line More info information on that screen and click button Run anyway on next screen._

Click YES when prompted by Windows U A C prompt to allow it to run.
Note: If you are prompted by Windows SmartScreen, click More info & followup & choose Run anyway.


Approve the Windows UAC prompt on Windows Vista and newer operating systems by clicking on Continue or Yes. 

Click Yes when the* disclaimer* appears in FRST.
The tool may want to update itself - in that case you'll be prompted when the update is completed and ready to use.

Make sure that Addition options is *checked* - the configuration should look exactly like on the screen below (do not mark additional things unless asked).
Press Scan button and wait.

The tool will produce 2  logfiles on your desktop: FRST.txt , Addition.txt 
Click OK button when it shows up. Close the Notepad windows when they show on screen. The tool saves the files.

Please attach these 2 files to your next reply.

Thank you.

Hi Maurice, 

Thanks for your prompt reply.

You can call me Abhinav

In my case, I definitely KNOW which files has posed the copy paste problem. It is a link. 

When you click on the link, it gives you a vgb file.

When you click on that vgb file, it runs. AND THEN IT DELETES ITSELF.

And then the famous copy paste problem happens.

Do you want me to share that link?

Do you still want me to scan with FRST and share the logs. 

Do let me know.

 

Warm Regards

You mention some "link"   (When you click on the link, it gives you a vgb file. )   .....so where is that link exactly?

and.   do NOT use it  !!!

Which web browser do you normally use ?   Is there another one you can use ?

What is the Windows version on this machine ?   Please provide me all the information & detail as much as possible.

 

It could just be that the browser you used is somehow not set to use secure connections  ( those starting with HTTPS  )

IF this machine runs on Windows 10 , then please see about using the EDGE browser.

 

Let’s  please try to get and run a special  report  tool from Microsoft. 

It does not make changes. It will be just a report.

 

  • Please download Sysinternals Autoruns from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Note: you also need to do the following:
  • Right-click on Autoruns.exe and select Properties
  • Click on the Compatibility tab
  • Under Privilege Level check the box next to Run this program as an administrator
  • Click on Apply then click OK


Double-click Autoruns.exe to run it.
Once it starts, please press the Esc key on your keyboard.
Now that scanning is stopped, click on the Options button at the top of the program and select Filter Options...

In the Autoruns Filter Options dialogue, verify that the following are unchecked, if they are checked, uncheck them:

  • Include empty locations
  • Hide Microsoft entries
  • Hide Windows entries


Verify that the following is checked, if it is unchecked, check it:

  • Verify code signatures


Once that's done press the F5 key on your keyboard, this will start the scan again, this time let it finish.
When it's finished and says Ready. on the lower left of the program window, please click on the File button at the top of the program and select Save and save the Autoruns.arn file to your desktop and close Autoruns.


Right click on the Autoruns.arn file on your desktop and hover your mouse over Send To and select Compressed (zipped) Folder
Attach the Autoruns.zip folder you just created to your next reply

 

Thank you.
