      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.

CWS_NS3

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

My PC (XP Home Ed.) has become infected with the CWS_NS3. I currently run SpySweeper which cleaned out some of the issues but not completely. I have run HiJackThis and cleaned the registry entries but now have questions about removing other items. Enclosed is the log file from HiJackThis. There are 4 items in the O4 section that I believe should be removed - iedm.exe, ntzp32.exe, netlp32.exe and addqr.exe. Also, the O8 item - extra context menu

Hmmmm...CWS NS3 is some special name Spysweeper has given it that I don't recognize (well, maybe), but the 04 items looks like of the new CWS variants that will show up in the log produced from the following program. Please do this:

 

Download FINDnFIX.exe from here (choose *save* not "open with"):

http://freeatlast100.100free.com/

 

or here:

http://downloads.subratam.org/FINDnFIX.exe

 

Find the FINDnFIX icon on your desktop and doubleclick and choose *extract*.

 

post-154-1089377821.gif

 

This will place a new folder on your system at: C: FindnFIX which will open for you. Doubleclick on the !LOG!.bat

 

post-154-1089378763.gif

 

IMPORTANT! Before you run this tool please close ALL running programs and ALL open windows except for the FindnFix folder.

 

Relax, sit back and wait a few minutes while the program collects the necessary information.

*NOTE:If your AntiVirus is running a scriptblocker, when you run this tool, you will probably receive an alert warning you that the script is running. "Allow" the script to run.

 

When the program is finished it will open Notepad and produce a log.txt file. Copy and paste the contents of that log back here in a reply.
