      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.

Hijack Log - Spyware?

4 posts in this topic

eta: I've made a few new posts in this thread with updated information.

 

 

Every time I sign off the internet, my computer calls for a connection to kthx.owns-u.com. I think I may also have some other trojans/hijacks.

 

Also read that this is a trojan, but no clear confirmation if it was:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuamgrd.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft DirectX] wuamgrd.exe

 

 

AVG virus scanner also detects the virus AntiEXE, but I don't have a bootable disk that I need to remove it...

AVG no longer detects the AntiEXE virus, possibly because I ran a server-side virus scan with Panda and it disinfected two files,

 

After running AVG again, it detected 13 trojans, 12 of which were healed (all variations of Revop and Download.Espeor). The 13th, which is still on my system because it could not be healed, is called Torjan Horse IRC/BackDoor.SdBot.22.BH. It's located in a system restore file. Would it be safe to just disable and reenable Sytem Restore? Should I go into Safe Mode first? Or should I do something else? I looked for removal instructions at McAfee Security Response, but they only had instructions for variations such as SdBot.A, and they involved editing the registry...

 

 

This keeps on reappearing on Adaware:

 

Vendor:Possible Browser Hijack attempt

Category:Data Miner

Object Type:RegData

Size:-

Location:Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main "Start Page" ("about:blank")

Last Activity:5-29-2004

Comment:Possible browser hijack attempt

Description:Possible attempt to control\redirect the browser. This object referrs to a "blacklisted" site.

 

 

 

Here's my latest log of HijackThis. Some things look suspicious :

C:\WINDOWS\System32\wuauclt.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft DirectX] wuamgrd.exe
