      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.

IE Hijacked

5 posts in this topic

Everytime I start up IE it goes to a porn site, and then tries to download a trogan (which Nortan Anti-virus blocks.) I tried Ad-Aware and CSW-shredder, but they find nothing. I tried manually removing the browser links in my Registry that the Hijacker places there, but the hijacker resets them back as soon as I exit Regedit.

 

 

Any help on finding and eradicating this hijacker would be appreciated. Below is log from HijackThis...

Thanks for the quick reply. Tried that, but the hijacker trojan simply changes the Registry back to the way it wants after HijackThis does its thing. Attached is a log after I ran Hijacker. The trogan seems to have inserted itself someplace and knows how to reset things back.

 

I aslo noticed that, if I run IE and let it go to the porn site, suddenly my list of trused sites has several hundred junk sites listed. I removed all these, but it does not solve the problem either.
