      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.

Hi,

First thing to do is ...

 

Reconfigure Windows Explorer to show Hidden Files: [required step]

Open the Windows Explorer Folder Options - View [tab]:

 

Scroll down to the "Files and Folders" section.

Select: "Display the contents of system folders".

 

Scroll down to the "Hidden Files and Folders" section.

Select: "Show hidden files and folders", Ok the prompt

Uncheck: "Hide file extensions for known file types"

Uncheck: "Hide protected operating system files" Ok the Prompt, click Apply

 

Click the "Apply to all Folders" button. Close Windows Explorer.

 

Next:

 

Close all open windows, except for HijackThis place a check in each of the following:

Then click "Fix checked".

Do you know what this is? If not remove it also ...

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [harddisk] C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\harddisk.exe

 

Then reboot, on restart, restart in Safe Mode [required step - see "How To" below]

 

Start | Run (type) "%temp%" (no quotes)

Completely delete the entire contents of that "temp" folder.

 

Open Windows Explorer locate and delete the following:

 

C:\WINDOWS\win.exe <--this file

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wer1306.dll <--this file

C:\WINDOWS\System32\backup.dll <--this file

C:\WINDOWS\dial.dll <--this file

C:\WINDOWS\System32\jfi.dll <--this file

C:\WINDOWS\sysupd.exe <--this file

C:\WINDOWS\System32\winupd.exe <--this file

winsearchie32.chm <--this file

winsearchie32.exe <--this file

Note: locate via Start > Search make sure to select: "Advanced Options"

 

After the above, reboot, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log ...

Hi,

Your log looks clean now ... good job!

 

Last Step:

 

"Flush System Restore" (see "How To" below)

Basically turn off System Restore, reboot and turn System Restore back on and create a new Restore Point.

 

You do not seem to have any Antivirus running? (bad idea)

Hi,

Thanks, I am running a virus program (mcafee)
Looks like I missed that ... try it this way ...

 

 

"Flush System Restore" (see "How To" below)

Basically turn off System Restore, reboot, run a full (updated) McAfee scan, reboot and turn System Restore back on and create a new Restore Point.
