      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.

This is getting annoying.

Ok this is my problem, A few months ago back I had a similar problem where my Windows Task Bar/ Start Up bar would freeze and my internet would not work. We found out it letting it sit for a while was the key but in this case it was not. We have figured out how to unfreeze the task bar but not fix the internet. We had a similar case where the internet would not work because of a spyware file. We tried running Spy Bot, Ad-Aware and Spy Killer 2004 and nothing came up. It says we are connected to the internet but I can't get out to it. I tried phoning the company I bought this computer from and they said I have corrupted some file and I need to down load hijackthis! but the only problem is I can't get to the internet to recieve that file.

 

Any suggestions or complete answer would be appreciated.

As you can post here, you have access to another computer.

 

Hijack this can be downloaded on another computer, and transferred using a floppy disk. The log can be transferred in the same way.
