      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.

Hello,

 

Your copy of HijackThis is outdated. Please create a new folder on the C: drive and name it C:\HJT or something similar. You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select "New" then "Folder" and name it HJT. Next, click here to download the latest version of HijackThis, v1.98. Download it directly into the new folder. Delete your old copy of HijackThis.

 

Next, boot into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key as your computer restarts (or see instructions below). Then go to Add/Remove Programs in your Control Panel and remove any/all instances of HotBar and any other dubious toolbar and/or search programs. Reboot when finished.

 

NOTE: Please print a copy of these instructions because you will be working in Safe Mode and/or with all windows closed except HijackThis.

 

Please run HijackThis in Safe Mode....

 

Reboot into safe mode, this way:

Restart the computer

Immediately begin tapping the <F8> key.

Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press the <Enter> key.

 

Also, enable the ”Show Hidden Files and Folders” option:

Click Start.

Open My Computer.

Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.

Select the View Tab. Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.

Uncheck: Hide file extensions for known file types

Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.

Click Yes to confirm.

Click OK.

 

Place a check mark next to the following items then, WITH ALL OTHER WINDOWS CLOSED, select “fix checked.” Please note that the items in BLUE are optional suggested fixes that will not remove the programs, only keep them from running at start-up, and may have the added benefit of freeing up some of your system’s resources.

 

O2 - BHO: Hotbar - {B195B3B3-8A05-11D3-97A4-0004ACA6948E} - C:\Program Files\Hotbar\bin\4.4.7.0\HbHostIE.dll

 

O3 - Toolbar: &Hotbar - {B195B3B3-8A05-11D3-97A4-0004ACA6948E} - C:\Program Files\Hotbar\bin\4.4.7.0\HbHostIE.dll

 

04 - HKLM\..\Run: [WeatherOnTray] C:\Program Files\Hotbar\bin\4.4.7.0\WeatherOnTray.exe

 

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Hotbar] C:\Program Files\Hotbar\bin\4.4.7.0\HbInst.exe /Upgrade

 

Now, search for, and delete the following folder:

 

C:\Program Files\Hotbar\

 

Please delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (do not delete the temp folder itself) like for example:

 

C:\WINDOWS\Temp\

 

C:\Temp\

 

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\

 

Also delete your Temporary Internet Files, be sure to also select "delete all offline content."

 

Empty your Recycle Bin.

 

Reboot into normal mode.

 

Proceed to the Windows Update site (see link below) download and install ALL critical updates.

 

Reboot when finished.

 

If you are not running version 1.3 of Spybot S & D, click here to download Spybot Search & Destroy v1.3 - install, update, reboot into Safe Mode, scan and fix all RED items it finds. Reboot into normal mode when done.

 

Perform a customized Ad-aware scan in Safe Mode........

 

If you do not have the latest version of Ad-aware, version 6, Build 6.181, click here to download Ad-Aware and install. Before scanning click on "check for updates now" to make sure you have the latest reference file. Then boot into Safe Mode, start the program, and click the gear wheel at the top and check these options to configure Ad-aware for a customized scan:

 

General> activate these: "Automatically save log-file" and "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal"

 

Scanning > activate these: "Scan within archives", "Scan active processes", "Scan registry", "Deep scan registry", "Scan my IE Favorites for banned sites" and "Scan my Hosts file"

 

Tweaks > Scanning Engine> activate this: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

 

Tweaks > Cleaning Engine: activate these: "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

 

Click "Proceed" to save your settings, then click "Start", make sure "Activate in-depth scan" is ticked green then scan your system. When the scan is finished, the screen will tell you if anything has been found, click "Next". The bad files will be listed, right click the pane and click "Select all objects" - this will put a check mark in the box at the side, click "Next" again and click "OK" at the prompt "# objects will be removed. Continue?" Reboot into normal mode when finished.

 

Next, perform online virus and Trojan scans, using the links in my signature below. Allow the programs to delete all that they may find. Reboot after each scan.

 

Scan with HijackThis and post a fresh log into this same thread.
