      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.

Spyblaster is not recommended. Their site is on my restricted list.

(Not to be confused with SpywareBlaster which is a fine little utiility) .

Spyware Blaster is similar to the Immunize function of Spybot Sd but has more updates and is configurable. No harm having them both. SpywareBlaster is run just once to set registry entries and is not a running process.

If you must feel safe and secure as you need to be, Ad Aware, Spybot S&D and Spyware Blaster all work in concert. A special note to any that use Spyware blaster, and you use tools and check the disable IE home page settings, and you run AdAware and see an item appear in registry the spyware blaster is the culprit.

I just registered with SWI and want to let the community know how gratifying it is to have "helpers" out there. Many thanks to all of you. I just ran SpyBot and will pick up on the other suggestions as well.

 

One ? is the "value changed" messages that come up after SpyBot has run. They indicate the old vs the new data and ask if you should accept or deny the change.

When I ran a search on the new data, rydo84k.exe I came to three postings, two for computer Cop that never quite loaded up all the way thru IE and the 3rd was SWI which I am very glad did load.

 

I would appreciate any feedback re: the new vs old data choices.
