      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.

Start Page Problem

6 posts in this topic

Hi.

Hope you can help similar problems to alot of people here I had the About Blank homepage hijack problem.

I deleted a few things not quite sure what hence my title name and it seemed to go away.

However I now have a Start Page 4.0ao problem according to AVG every time I log in and its always in windows/system/xxx.dll

Obviously I didnt quite rid myself of the problem so I have downloaded my Hijack this log and have posted it below.

Its is a basic Windows 95 System so hopefully someone will be able to pinpoint the problem pretty quickly.

Important: Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT.

You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it HJT.

Unzip HijackThis into this folder. When you run HijackThis from this folder and have it "Fixed checked" it will create a backup file of modifications to use if restore is necessary.

You are running hijackthis from the temp inter net files not a good Idea,you should download it and unzip to you c:\ like I suggested in the post above .

 

 

If you used spy-bot to set these ok,if you didn't they should be fixed .

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
