      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.

meltdown fighting ai.find

2 posts in this topic

in the process of trying to scour away a highjacker that put me in ai.find purgatory, i did something quite stupid. essentially, i erased a file through hijackthis that looked something like this:

 

02 - BHO:(no name) - {0000000000000000-00000-0000-0000-000000000000} - C:\windows......mxcdsm.dll

 

not too sure about the actual file but it was a BHO and evidentally it controlled the cd-rom directory.

 

during start-up, (windows 98) before the desktop loads, a window opens that states:

 

Can't find CD-ROM Directory

 

Please select DirectX 5.0 setup path

 

and then asks for an .exe file.

 

i looked in a few places but i'm in a bit over my head, as you can see. any sort of insight into this matter would be hugely appreciated.

quick update:

 

ran scanreg/restore from a command prompt (after a safe mode start-up failed.) picked a registry from a week ago, just to be safe. the results were successful. thank god for automatic registry back-ups!

 

thanks for anyone who read (and didn't scoff too much.)
