      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.

Hi, please check on my reply to topic "VX2 keeps coming back after scans".

mxTarget.dll is just a helper file (among a few others) of the spyware called VX2. I found the prime suspect to be a file named xuzpba.exe under c:\windows or c:\winnt. (It's better you do a search from the rootto locate it.) That file seems to be the file that keeps putting mxTarget.dll back.

In that topic, my post details the steps that I went through that seem to have discontinued mxTarget.dll and other helper files from coming back.

Can't guarantee coz I don't know myself that it's a true fix but so far, they still have not come back. Any day without seeing those things is a good day, wouldn't you say?

 

I didn't go through your log. You may be infected by more than one spyware or with different variation.

However, let me know if my suggestion posted in the other topic helps you at all.

 

Good luck,

peacenik
