      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.

010020ED3ACBD0 Program

4 posts in this topic

When I run MSCONFIG under STARTUP I get an entry identified as 010020ED3ACBD0 that wants to run at startup. It is identified only as "|". I have unchecked it and it comes back about a week later. I did a search through the registry and found it several times. I was able to remove most of the appearances. One would not allow me to remove it or edit it. It appeared in the registry in the following folders:

P3GLOBAL

MSACM

HKLMRUN

MSJCP

 

This is the key I can't edit or remove:

 

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE

SYSTEM

CURRENT CONTROL SET

SERVICES

VxD

DHCP

 

I did a search for that text in files on my computer and it appeared in:

USER.DAT

HWINFO.DAT

SYSTEM.DAT

B-206085.DAT

ARCREG

 

I am using windows 98se. It doesn't appear on my laptop or my wifes computer. What is it? How do I get rid of it?

 

I have run Spybot and I have Norton Systemworks. Neither finds anything and my systems seems to be ok.

I don't understand what half of this stuff is. So any suggestions on items to remove is welcome.

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

That's an interesting situation. Since it's in your DHCP it can be related to extracting your IP adress for some nefarious purpose, it's also in P3Global which is a hijacking 'search assistant' , when I went to their website, I got a alert pop up from a protection program asking if I wanted to change my homepage to this crudware 'search site' ......

 

Since you can't get rid of it, I would assume that it's a trojan hijacking your system for some information purpose.

 

Run the Hijack This scan again. Then put a check next to all the following and click 'fix' ..... .

---------->

 

There's no real malicious spyware/adware running on your machine but I would run a good 'trojan' remover to see if it will catch anything related to this.

 

Do these online scans first:

BitDefender Virus/Trojan Scan

RavantVirus Online Scan

Mcafee Online Scan

 

Remove anything and all they find. If they come up with some trojan, post that definition back here.

 

---------->

 

Download and run this powerful trojan remover:

TDS-3 Trojan Remover

 

Delete any files that it finds, if you think something was related to this, post that back,

 

---------->

 

One other thing you could do is to check your 'listening' ports to see if there is a connection there

 

Click on Start / Programs / Ms Dos Prompt .....

At the blinking cursor type netstat -a, then hit enter, study those ports to see if something is malicious,

 

You can make a text copy of your listening ports and post it back here and I'll take a look at them too,

 

At the same dos prompt type the following command and hit enter:

netstat -an |find "listening" /i >c:\openports.txt

 

Note the spacing, skip space after netstat, -an, find, & listening .... this | is made by using your shift key while pressing your backwards slash \ key,

 

Nothing will happen after you finish that, so go back to Start / Find ..... and search for openports.txt, copy and paste that here in the forum,

 

;)

I could not get to the Ravantvirus Online scan for some reason. I did run the other two and they found nothing. The TDS-3 program found nothing either. This is a list of my listening ports. Seems to me like a lot of listening but then I don't have a clue.

 

TCP 0.0.0.0:1028 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

TCP 0.0.0.0:1030 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

TCP 0.0.0.0:1033 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

TCP 0.0.0.0:135 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

TCP 127.0.0.1:1026 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

TCP 127.0.0.1:1029 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING

Between your online scans & TDS-3, I don't think it's a trojan or malicious. Your ports are ok, there will be a lot of listening mostly for the services running on your machine, some ports that can be used for trojans will have legitimate services running, once you check the service then you know it's ok,

 

Nothing dark on yours though,

 

Still, run this little program, Port Checker

 

After you download it, go online and click on 'check ports now' ......... should come back clean, if not, post it's results,
