      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.

Unstopable Pop-ups with browser closed

3 posts in this topic

I have been unable to stop IE pop-up windows from appearing on screen. This is a computer configured to run SnapStream Beyond TV PVR software and does little else other than record shows and share files on my internal network. It also serves as my main video editing machine for home videos.


I have run Spybot and Adaware, turned off Windows messaging and other uneeded services to no avail. My default browser is Mozilla Firefox, but the pop ups appear in IE explorer.


I have a nephew that played some games on this system and visited some cheat-code web sites which is where I assume I was bombarded with mal-ware.



Here is my hijack-This log. Please advise what I can safely get rid of:

You have the Peper trojan, which requires special treatment to put it out of your misery!

Please download and run this uninstaller.


Click on the peperfix link, and download the program. Then go off line, and run the program. It will remove the files, leaving one orphaned entry to be cleaned up with Hijack this.


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.

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing


O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [3EEQEE42DXA7E@] E:\WINDOWS\System32\Iyh5.exe

Reboot and delete the file E:\WINDOWS\System32\Iyh5.exe


This may be a hidden file. See HERE for how to show hidden files.


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