      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 - Tried Everything!!

8 posts in this topic

I've tried Spybot S & D, AD Aware, Cool Web Site Shredder, Buster and manual deletion of registry entries. CSW and Buster both correct my problem - until I turn off my computer and turn it on again.

 

The home page is changed to "about blank" and I get a serach engine that's not identified by name. BH Deomon says it's Cool Web Site but the shredder does not correct the problem longer than one session. Like I said, I turn the compter off and when I turn back on I'm back to the same start up page.

 

Here's the logfile:

Download Win98Fix.zip from here.

 

Unzip to its own folder. Open Folder and double click on RunFix.reg file. Hit 'Yes' to merge it into your registry. Restart your computer. The bad file should now be visible so you can delete it.

 

Browse to c:\windows\system\LOGGJ.DLL then delete it.

 

Click here to download CWShredder by Merijn Bellekom and run it, hit 'fix' as opposed to 'scan only'. If you already have CWShredder, click 'Check for update' and make sure you are running version 1.59.1 Reboot when done. Rescan with HJT and post a new log in your next reply.

Looks OK now - how is it running?

 

(I assume you recognise the proxy server setting?)

It seems ok. When I deleted the file LOGGJ.DLL I could tell something good happened.

 

I'll find out more on Monday. I've gotten rid of the hijack before only to have it pop back on hours later.

 

I can tell you that I've wasted hours trying to figure this out. I learned a lot but really got frusterated not being able to fix this. You're my new hero. How did you learn this stuff?

 

I'd love help out if a regular computer user can learn this stuff. I'm so pissed at the people that produce this scumware and I'm interested in learning more. I've helped friends using CSW shredder and some of the other utilities, but these hidden files are way beyond me.

 

Any ideas where I could learn enough to help out?

 

Thanks again. I'll report back to this thread if things don't work out.

 

PS Yes, that's my proxy server setting.

 

THANKS AGAIN....I'M IMPRESSED BY YOUR SKILLS!

You're welcome - glad to help :D It won't come back.

 

To help keep you clean follow the recommendations in Tony's article here:

 

So how did I get infected in the first place?

 

 

If you want to help out, have a look at the training schemes here:
