      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.

Clicking on links are redirecting me

4 posts in this topic

Hello. When I google something and click a link, it redirects me to another site and sometimes a site that tells me I have malware blah blah blah install this. It first started yesterday when I was playing games and I heard audio coming out of my speakers like I was streaming a video but I had closed everything, so I just restarted and that fixed the problem. When I click the links it redirects me to another search engine or to some security website telling me that my computer is infected. The "Security Tools" program has also popped up on my computer but I was able to remove it. I am using Firefox on Windows XP, tried using Spyware Doctor, Malwarebytes, RemoveIT Pro.

 

Here is my HJT log

Hi,

I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

 

Print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

 

Download ComboFix from one of these locations:

 

Link 1

Link 2

 

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

 

  • Disable your Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
     
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
     
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
     
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

 

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

 

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

 

Do not mouse click combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall
