      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.

Browser Hijack to search-for-you.com

2 posts in this topic

Hello, I seem to have gotten my homepage hijacked. I have read the FAQ and still am having a problem. Each time I open my browser, it get redirected to www.search-for-you.com. I went through my registry and removed all references to that web site and then rebooted my machine. The registry settings changed back to www.search-for-you.com again. I have MicroTrend Virus Scan, and ran that but it did not find any problems. I downloaded X-Cleaner and ran it without any luck. I downloaded Spybot - Search and Destroy and ran it and it found numberous items. I had it clean the items it found and rebooted. Still no change. I went and downloaded HijackThis and ran it. I had it fix problem items and rebooted, but still had no luck. Based on Pacman's list, I tried to have HijackThis clean/remove ntldr.exe, but got an error. Can someone please help me to fix?

 

I am currently running Win2000 Pro with IE 6 SP1.

 

Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.

:wtf:

:bounce: Somehow, I actually got it removed. Not sure exactly what happened, but after getting the error when trying to delete ntldr.exe. I went back and ran HJT and after the scan, it was no longer in the list. I went ahead and recleaned the references to www.search-for-you.com via HJT then rebooted. Now everything seems to be working fine. Thanks to everyone's prior posts and the FAQ. It helped a lot.
