      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.

jeff303,

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

This is just to let you know that help is coming. I will be handling your log for now. Just keep checking for a reply. I should have a fix for you soon, but in the meantime, I need you to post the whole log please. You are missing the top where it shows the following kind of information:

 

Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7

Platform: Windows 2000 SP4 (WinNT 5.00.2195)

MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)

 

Yours might be different depending on the kind of operating system you have.

Hi jeff303,

 

In order to follow the steps, print all this if you think you need to.

 

Go to run\Control Panel \ Administrative Tools \ Services find WToolsA and stop the service.

 

Download Ad-Aware 6 from here http://www.lavasoft.de/ You can get the free version if you want.

 

Open Ad-aware and make the following changes to the settings in Ad-aware.

 

- Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweak > Scanning Engine:

check: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

 

- Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweak > Cleaning Engine:

Check: "Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot."

 

Press 'Proceed'

 

Press 'Start'

 

- Select option 'Use Custom scanning options'

- Click 'Activate in-depth scan'

- Press 'Select drives\folders to scan' Select the active partition which is usually C:

- Click Customize

- Make the following are all are Checked

*'Scan Within Archives'

*'Scan Active Processes'

*'Scan Registry'

*'Deep Scan Registry'

*'Scan My IE Favorites For Banned URL'S

*'Scan My Hosts File'

 

- Click Proceed

 

Now press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...

 

Select all findings, and allow Ad-aware to fix them.

 

Close Ad-aware, reboot.

 

Now, please get the new version for HJT, 1.98, and remember to put it in its own folder. Once done, make sure all Windows and browsers are closed. Then go ahead and Open Up Hijack This and Do The Scan. Once it is done scanning, check the boxes next to all these, then click Fix Checked.

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

 

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinTools] C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wdskctl] C:\WINNT\wdskctl.exe

 

These next 04 entries are both strongly recommended fixes, but they are optional. You can start them via start/programs if you need to use them.

 

O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe

O4 - Startup: PowerReg Scheduler.exe

 

Reboot

 

This task, C:\WINNT\System32\CTSVCCDA.EXE is of no use to any system, so it is best to disable it because it can sometimes give you endless error messages. You can do this through Control Panel \ Administrative Tools \ Services" – even better still, remove that service. This is totally optional, especially if you are not having any of the mentioned problems.

 

Next go to run/settings/control panel and in Add/Remove Programs look for and remove anything to do with WinTools\WToolsA.exe

 

To Delete These Files/Folders, You Will need to Boot into Safe Mode. Follow

instructions here for safe mode if you need to: Windows 2000: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techi...nt/safemode.asp You also may need to enable the viewing of hidden/system files because sometimes they have hidden attributes. If you need to know how to this, please follow the instructions here: http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html ): Once you have enable the viewing of hidden/system files and are in safe mode, find and delete the following if found:

 

C:\Program Files\Common files\WinTools\WToolsA.exe

C:\WINNT\wdskctl.exe

 

Now to prevent WToolsA from coming back you need to delete your System Restore points. Do the following:

 

Right-click My Computer.

Click Properties.

Click the System Restore tab.

Check Turn off System Restore.

Click Apply, and then click OK.

 

Reboot.

 

Turn ON System Restore.

Right-click My Computer.

Click Properties.

Click the System Restore tab.

UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.

Click Apply, and then click OK

 

Reboot

 

You should update you browser (IE) as it's out of date, and if you haven't read this link, http://www.computercops.biz/postt7736.html, it would be a good idea to do so. Ad-aware, along with Spybot will help your system to stay clean by running them often. You can also get Crap Cleaner here http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-29.html to help you clean all kinds of unnecessary files and give you plenty of disk memory back. In options, it lets you keep any cookies you want.

 

Before you scan to post another HJT log to see if everything is OK, I like you to change the date in your computer a few days ahead. You can reset the date as soon as you are done scanning and saving the log. You can change the date via start/settings/control panel/date and time. Oh by the way, if you see anything bad in your next log, don't fix it yet. Let me take a look at it first.

 

Good luck!
