      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.

Adaware finds strange file

2 posts in this topic

I had about:blank and the generic search page plus spyware removal popups and followed some advice from Phantom which semed to get rid of most of the symptoms.

 

I don't have about:blank appearing anymore but my memory usage is always at 96%-100% and connections seem very slow - is that normal?

 

I ran The Fist's fix for ME and when I searched for *.dll files I found several with 57,344 bytes but none entered recently. I then looked for .dll files entered in June (I guess I was infected around the 10th or 11th) and found the following - but they have a value of 0 bytes!

 

kbdijle.dll 06/11/04

loghbfg.dll 06/11/04

winhlf.dll 06/11/04

winbmjc 06/11/04

 

I removed all the above and CWShredder doesn't show anything and Spybot S&D shows something called DSO exploit and something in German but says it has fixed them each time. Adaware run as suggested in tutorial also shows nothing. (I've run all in safe and normal mode). Also ran AboutBuster.

 

However when I run Adaware and choose Select File/folders and select Windows/Downloaded program files it shows up a folder called 3721. If I look in Windows explorer in the same folder there is no such file, just two McAfee files and a Shockwave Flash. I am suspicious because when about:blank redirected me before it was to a Chinese portal called 3721! I am worried there might still be something there which will return in the future.

 

Sorry this is so complicated but I can't explain it any better.

 

Thank you all for your invaluable help so far!

 

Here is HJT log
