      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.

Start Page Hijacked

4 posts in this topic

Recently my start page was Hijacked and I tried fixing it manually and with spyware tools, nothing seems to work. It appears to be fixed the first time you open the browser but after that it reverts back to the same Hijacked start page. I ran HijackThis which did the exact same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Below is a copy of my HJT log file.

 

Thanks,

Derrick

STEP 1.

 

Go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall any freeware programs or toolbars you see that are not needed; also look for unusual programs installed that you were not aware of and uninstall these as well.

 

STEP 2.

 

Run an antivirus program in Safe Mode. For instructions on how to access Safe Mode refer to: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...src=sec_doc_nam

 

How to Show Hidden and System files and folders:

http://www.xtra.co.nz/help/0,,4155-1916458,00.html

 

Also, uncheck the box for 'hide known file extensions' and 'hide protected operating system files'. We want to see it all. When we finish here, it would be a good idea to rehide the protected operating system files but leave the rest to be shown.

 

STEP 3.

 

Install, Configure, and run Ad-aware with the latest reference file in Safe Mode.

 

STEP 4.

 

Run the Rubber Ducky About:Buster program, get it here:

http://www.downloads.subratam.org/AboutBuster.zip

 

STEP 5.

 

Run HJT again and post the new log and the About:Buster log here for review.
