      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.

6 posts in this topic

Hi Hope someone can help because it's driving me up the wall

whenever I search something on google it diverts the result I've clicked to a search engine or random pages about adult search services, alot of the pages seem to have a similar look but nothing else in common, they also all activate my pop up blocker.The main pages it seems to divert to are maxfiles.com,heavy.com and monster.com although clothes pages and finacial pages have all come up. It also happens on ask.com, it normally takes three attempts to get the page you want. If you can help please tell me what to do in idiot speak because I'm a bit of a novice. thanks. here's the avg report thing

Just a possibility, but your hosts file might have been changed.

 

Navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\ and open the "hosts" file with Notepad. It should have a bunch of mumbo-jumbo with #'s beginning. The only entry without the #'s should be:

 

127.0.0.1 localhost

 

Post back here if you have any other entries in that file besides this.

Here's what it had in it

 

 

# Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.

#

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.

#

# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should

# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.

# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one

# space.

#

# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual

# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

#

# For example:

#

# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server

# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

 

127.0.0.1 localhost
