      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.

Problems with my desktop

2 posts in this topic

I got hit with a something that kept opening C:\Windows\dl.html and "pornscanner.net", that I have pretty much beaten, thanks to a benevolent being on another spyware board. However, with the virus, the desktop changed to an image promoting a website. I deleted the images on my hard drive and now I have a white background and I cant get rid of it. It appears behind the desktop icons, but seems to be in front of the real background. If I go to the uppermost part of the screen, I can right-click and get to the usual properties menu. When I log on or log off, I can see the regular desktop for a short time. When I right click on the white and go to properties, i can see that it is an html document with the address "file://C:\WINDOWS\Web\desktop.html". I have included a hijackthis log. I appreciate any help anyone can give me.

I right-clicked on the whiteness and went to 'View Source.' It opened a text document named "C__WINDOWS_Web_desktop[1]" which contained this:

I'm just putting this up here in case it will help someone solve this problem.
