      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.

IE-SPYAD & AGNIS Lists Updated (Jul. 1)

3 posts in this topic

Hi All:

 

All of my block lists have been updated, including:

 

* IE-SPYAD (Internet Explorer Restricted sites list)

* AGNIS (for AtGuard/NIS/NPF)

* AGNIS for Outpost

* AGNIS for AdShield

 

You can download all of these new versions at:

 

https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ehowes/www/resource.htm

 

Included with IE-SPYAD is an uninstaller (IE-ADS-UNINST.REG) for the *previous* and *current* versions of IE-SPYAD. IE-SPYAD also includes a batch file installation utility (INSTALL.BAT) that can be used to install and uninstall IE-SPYAD.

 

The original AGNIS block lists are compatible with AtGuard 3.x and ALL versions of Norton Internet Security as well as Norton Personal Firewall 2003 and 2004. There are separate versions of AGNIS for users of Agnitum Outpost and AdShield.

 

If you're running NIS 2002 Pro, NIS 2003, NIS 2003 Pro, NIS 2004, NIS 2004 Pro, NPF 2003, or NPF 2004, you CAN use the AGNIS block lists, however, you must use the ProWAGoN block list utility written by Christian Haagensen to load, remove, and backup ad block lists from NIS. Do NOT attempt to install AGNIS block lists in any of these versions of NIS or NPF by manually merging .REG files or using the AGNIS.BAT batch file utility included with AGNIS. Use the ProWAGoN utility instead. You can download ProWAGoN here:

A summary of what's new, updated, and changed in IE-SPYAD and AGNIS can be found here:

If you have any questions or comments about IE-SPYAD, AGNIS, AGNIS for Outpost, or AGNIS for AdShield, please don't hesitate to let me know.

 

Best,

 

Eric L. Howes

I wanted to get these updates, but the instructions are confusing to me.

 

When I clicked the uninstall thing in the directory, it asked me if I wanted to ADD the file (and showed what it was) to the registry. Since I am uninstalling, why would I want to add it?

 

D :wave:
