Internet Explorer 8 "Tab Recovered" Virus

    Question

  • Recently I downloaded what I thought was a game. It produced an icon on the desktop, and then it was gone. Now IE8 is driving me absolutely insane. Sometimes, the window closes as fast as it opens.
    Every other time, it comes up with http://www.google.co.nz/ig?brand=TSUA&bmod=TSAU. It then continuously recovers the tab and after two goes, it comes up with res://ieframe.dll/acr_error/htm#google.co.nz,http://www.google.co.nz/ig?brand=TSAU&bmod=TSAU
    Google is my homepage.
    It continues to recover the tab but then says "We were unable to return you to the page you were viewing".
    It does it at such a rate that I can do nothing else with Internet Explorer.
    Does anybody know what the ____ this is and how to get rid of it.

    hi ,

    safety tab , delete browsing history , tools > internet options , browsing history , click settings , then look at the files , delete all , close IE , reboot IE

    internet options , click add ons , see whats there , anything from google , delete it

    click the link of the one care scanner in my signature , unflag virus scan , see what that finds and can be fixed

    reboot , that should do it

    make sure your internet seetings regarding privacy and security are set at least to medium high from now on , get MSE also to protect you from bugs

    good luck

  • I have got same problem two times in last week. I have tried to download a crack of DIVx plus converter's serial from rapid-share, After downloading the file I got a link for downloading crack, when I click on it, one icon displayed in desktop after clicking it IE8 behave abnormal, and always try to restore the tab. in the url it shows that ieifrem.dll  ...................bla bla bla.....error. I have checked in online web search to find out the solution, but there are no effective solution, some advice to use malwarebytes scanner.

     

    suddenly I thought to restore the system...and it's works 100%. The IE8 tab recovered problem finally solved. So, please do it, hope this will also solve your problem.

    Thnx

    I have configured the below setting on IE8 and it is working fine.

    Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level -> "ActiveX controls and plug-ins" -> Enable "Automatic prompting for

    ActiveX controls"

  • ***************PROBLEM SOLVED*************!!!! Go to the upper right hand top corner of Internet Explorer 8.0 and next to the Magnifying Glass is a dropdown. Choose anyone for your Search Toolbar other than Google {I chose "Live Search (Default)}". IT FIXED IT! That's it. I researched this problem for a long time and called the Anti-Virus company I **PAID** a 2-year subscription for, and they didn't know and referred me to their "Expert" Staff (for a princely sum I imagine) to fix it. I said: "No thank you". Within 30 minutes of that telephone call I solved it myself. My thanks to 2 people: One person (I don't know who he was) posted in a Forum his aggravation about the "Google Toolbar". I also saw where another (unknown) person mentioned in a Forum he had used "Google Translate", which I had recently used as well. I think that was a key to my getting the bug. But in my opinion, forget all this nonsense (I tried much of it to no avail) about misconfig, restore IE when it has become unstable, modify your internal files, disable add-ons, blah, blah blah. If my solution solves your problem, I would be grateful for an e-mail to know I did help you. I am Keith at physiognomy@hotmail.com. Thanks!
