      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.

Task Mgr/RegEdit

5 posts in this topic

Hi, For several weeks now I have been unable to use either Task Manager or RegEdit. What happens is, if I run regedit, or ctrl-alt-del Task Manager neither one will stay up/running for more than 1 second. I've tried a couple of different virus checkers, spybot s&d, trojanhunter and adaware. None of them find/fix the problem. Any ideas?


Also, and I'm not sure if this started at the same time or not, but my folders no longer save their view settings.





attached is my hijackthis! log

Ensure you have all folders and files visible. Double-click My Computer.

Click the Tools menu, and then click Folder Options.

Click the View tab. Clear "Hide file extensions for known file types."

Under the "Hidden files" folder, select "Show hidden files and folders."

Clear "Hide protected operating system files."

Click Apply, and then click OK.


Run HJT again and tick the above items only. Next, close all other windows, make sure you have only those ticked I mentioned and only then should you click Fix Selected.

Reboot and delete these files or folders as stated;








Open the Start menu and select Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup. The Disk Cleanup applet calculates the amount of space you can save by emptying the Recycle Bin, deleting temporary Internet files, Temp files and (for NTFS drives) compressing old files. Run this to clear up those Temp folders.

Thanks for the info, one problem though. qsync and augmsg cannot be removed by HJT. I followed your instructions and first they couldn't be deleted (the "in use" error msg) then I tried "fixing" them with HJT again, they came back and showed up in each succesive scan.


I'm thinking boot to safe mode command prompt, delete the files, then use HJT to delete the reg settings?
