I wanted to cut and paste some text from a website into Word and encountered the following all while logged onto my dial-up ISP:
- highlighted text of interest
- launched Microsoft Word
- right clicked in blank Word document and clicked “paste”
- Comodo alerts me internet explorer is trying to connect to internet; application is iexplore.exe and security considerations indicates C:/program files/Office 10/winword.exe has tried to use iexplore.exe through OLE automation …
- clicked Deny in Comodo and text still appears in the Word document.
I have found winword.exe in the folder identified by Comodo but also twice in C:/Documents and Settings/“my name”/Temp/ folder. All WinWord.exe files are clean as per scanning via www.virustotal.com.
