      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.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Question about res:// hijacking

My browser was hijacked and kept returning to the following homepage:

 

res://yrzitdll/index.html#37049

 

After researching this site, I did the following:

 

Under internet options>advanced - I unchecked the 'enable third party browser extensions'

 

Restarted computer in Safe Mode

 

Ran AdAware (v6.0 Build 6.181; reference 01R325 27.6.2004)

 

Deleted everything it came up with

 

Ran HijackThis. Here is the log:

I checked and fixed the following:

 

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\yrzit.dll/sp.html#37049

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\yrzit.dll/sp.html#37049

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search_URL = res://C:\WINDOWS\yrzit.dll/sp.html#37049

 

 

I then rebooted the computer in Normal Mode. The problem seems to be fixed. I'm no longer sent to the res:// site and I'm no longer getting the "Only the Best" pop-ups.

 

However, I am getting an Error message and IE shuts down whenever I try to use the drop-down arrow on the Address bar (to look at my previously visited sites).

 

When I deleted the files in the HijackThis log, did I delete someting vital to IE??

 

Is there anything else I need to do?

 

Thanks!!

I had the same infection and tried the above and I have been clean for a couple of hours now.

 

I had tried AdAware and Spybot along with HiJackThis but it kept returning until I followed exactly what animaldr suggested from unchecking enable third party browser extensions to running AdAware in safe mode. I ran HiJackThis as well and Spybot S&D in safe mode, then booted back into Normal mode.

 

Then I made a donation to this site, read up on Preventing Browser Hijacking in Spyware Info and took his advice about changing IE settings, downloading Spyware Blaster and Browser Hijack Blaster. The next step is Opera or Mozilla. I'll take a look and those and if they are decent one of them is my new browser.

 

Holding my breath, but OK currently.

Forgot to add one thing. So far the only thing I see different from when IE was normal is more prompting and the loss of the google tool bar from my Yahoo Home Page. If that's all I'm happy. Still holding my breath, though.
