      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.

Hi funnie11

 

try doing defrag & scandisk in safe mode. Pogrammes that run in the background can hamper your defrag sometimes making it keep starting over.

thanx, i tried that, and it seemed to be going a little faster, but it would still restart every once in a while. when i pressed CTRL-ALT-DELETE, it said that the only 2 programs running were Explorer and Scandisk, so i dont kno. Also, wut do they mean when they say press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and click on the Processes tab? i dont hav that. is it because i hav windows 98?

Hi funnie11

 

CTRL-ALT-DELETE brings up the task manager

Task manager enables you to end processes and applications that are running on your computer

Useful when a programme stops responding you can end it in task manager

This may be the problem:

 

C:\PROGRAM FILES\NETROPA\ONE-TOUCH MULTIMEDIA KEYBOARD\MMKEYBD.EXE

 

Found this at another forum, couldn't check at sysinfo.org as it seems to be experiencing bandwidth problems. Seems like this might be the culprit that is writing to disk.

 

"Hewlett Packard Pavilion computers come pre-installed with "phone-home" spyware made by Netropa. This nasty phone-home software is named the "One touch multimedia keyboard". This spy ware is located in a computer file executable named mmkeybd.exe which drives the HP Pavilion pre-installed internet enabled keyboard."

 

Full thread here:

http://www.ahfb2000.com/webmaster_help_des...p?threadid=1184

 

IMPORTANT - Make sure you check with an expert here first before you start making any changes.

 

PS. Ctrl-Alt-Del won't show all the processes running on your PC. You can use something like the free, stand-alone Process Viewer to kill any running processes, available from www.sysinternals.com

 

Hope this helps..........Good luck. :D
