      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.

Ad-Aware Input

9 posts in this topic

:wave:

 

I've followed PGPhantom's advice of updating Ad-aware as of 6/29/04 and re-running in full scan mode. For the first time in several weeks, I know seem to have control of my own chosen home page and no "Only the Best" pop-ups. Hooray, Applause, Thank You, Thank You. :thumbsup:

 

I stand in awe at the spirit of co-operation and teamwork evidenced by this forum and its volunteers. This res://<random>.dll/>random>.html#<random> hijack has been the single most frustrating computer-related event I've ever experienced and I'm extraordinarily grateful to this forum for leading me to a resolution. I make the assumption that the team at Ad-aware incorporated a fix that benefited either partially or in full from the investigative work done here. Thanks again and please keep up the good work.

res://<random>.dll/<random>.html#<random> - e.g. res://yzrgm.dll/index.html#96676

As of June 28th, 2004 - Ad-Aware still leaves the service intact - You will still need to post your log to get this variant removed

To reinforce this statement, I can attest that I ran Ad-aware (with all the latest updates and per the configuration instructions here) on June 30, 2004 and it did not remove this malware variant. Sigh.

 

I'm being patient and not bumping my post.

 

 

Pssst. The thread is here. :whistle:

So am I to remove evrything in the log or just what the adware program highlights to remove?

Remove everything, for everything Ad Aware detects is spyware/malware reg hacks or whatever.

Ad aware has saved my life. ;D

Doesn't Ad-Aware leave its own spies on your system? I'm running Spy-Bot S&D (latest version) along with Norton 2004. I keep getting "raso.exe" in my Windows start-up. How can I block this?
