      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.

Hi, I suspect I have a key-logger.


I have done the following to clean up:

- run ATF Cleaner

- Scanned with Adaware (Anniversary Addition)

- Scanned with Spybot Search & Destroy

- Scanned with MBAM

- Scanned for virus with my Avast anti-Virus

- Scanned with online scanner BitDefender

All scans were full scans.


I'm pasting my hijackthis log-file and my mbam log (sorry the mbam is in swedish).

I'd be glad to know if anything looks suspicious.

    - Examples of older versions in Add or Remove Programs:
    • Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0
    • J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6

    [*]Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.

    [*]Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.

    [*]Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.

    [*]Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u14-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.



Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.


Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%

(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)


Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
  • Choose your usual account.

  • Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
  • It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
    (Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
  • Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum.

Look at this tutorial if assistance is needed.

I didn't have any Java-programs installed, so none were removed.

I installed the JRE 6.


After I ran the SDFix in safe mode I had a blue screen checkdisk when it restarted.


Here is the SDFix log:

Run by Ra on 2009-06-28 at 15:17


Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

Restoring Default Hosts File





Checking Files :

It says: Det gick inte att läsa in C:\Program\Delade filer\ParetoLogic\UUS2.dll

Det går inte att hitta den angivna modulen

You still have some remnant entries in the registry that must be removed.


Download the Registry Search Tool from here:



Unzip to your Desktop and double click on regsrch.vbs

(if you have script protection, please allow this to run)


In the dialog that opens enter the following:



Press 'OK'


The search will run for a while then alert you when it is finished.


Press 'OK' and copy the contents of the WordPad window and post in this thread.

I did run the RegSrch and all I get is a box saying:

Search completed in 16 seconds.

No instances of "UUS2.dll" was found.



When I click OK, no other windows opens.


or was I supposed to do the search in safe mode?
