      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.

Trojan TR/startpage.IG.1

4 posts in this topic

Last night i was surfing the net and my AntiVir software picked up this trojan in two locations (c:\windows\hosts and c:\windows\system32\drivers\ETC\hosts


Now every time I deleted it it kept on coming back. Now I cant even use msn or IE coz it keeps on freezing up (infact i dunno if the net is workn at all).


ive tried using the CWShredder and it said it had cleared the system but while it was doing it and after it had finished the antivir kept on saying the trojan TR/startpage.IG.1 was present and asked me if i wanted to delete etc.


So after that i used the Hijack this tool and this is the log (if some1 can tell me what to do):

Now the computer is only a couple of months old, so would it be wise just to take it back to a new computer (reformatting)

I ran the shredder in normal mode, then ran hijackthis to get the log.


I have now run the shredder in safe mode but still says that its clean, so would the log be any different if i ran hijackthis now.

(plus every time i post a report i have to burn a CD and send it up to this computer, since this trojan has frozen the browser)
