      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.

I got a pop-up saying my IP address and the vicinity of my location. It says it recorded all kind of porn sites on my computer and it would contact the FBI. Then, of course, it had a link to a history eraser. It had my IP address. What should I do? If someone has your IP address can you ever get rid of them? thanks for the help

This is a well known "scare" tactic used by the less reputable vendors of so called malware removal tools.

 

DO NOT click on any of the links!

 

Please do this: -

 

Download Hijack this . Unzip it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

 

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.

Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [YPELIBT] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\YPELIBT.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sysUpd] C:\WINDOWS\SYSUPD.EXE

Reboot and delete

 

files

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\YPELIBT.exe

C:\WINDOWS\SYSUPD.EXE

 

These may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

 

f someone has your IP address can you ever get rid of them?

 

Well, if your IP address was unknown, you would not be able to use the internet!

Your computer must be known, in order to receive any data from outside. There is no secutity risk in that.

The other threats are meaninless. The info about your computer is generated locally by a javasript in the web page.

If you have never tried it, just type "file:///c:/" (without the quotes) into your browser! That and more can be done by javascript in a webpage making it seem that someone is scanning you from elsewhere.

 

Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if your problems persist.
