      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 This Log for About:Blank Trojan

3 posts in this topic

Hello, can someone please check out my HiJack This Log.

 

My homepage keeps resetting to About:Blank.

 

I have run these programs and cannot get rid of it: CWShreder, AVG 6.0, Ad-Aware 6.0, Spybot S&D, Norton Antivirus, Spy-Sweeper, and HiJack This. My HiJack this log is below.

 

I understand that a couple of the registry values have to be deleted or changed. However, I am not sure which ones. Please help.

Thanks,

PH

about:blank trojan removed!

(aka HomeOldSP hijacker)

 

I tried most adware programs to no avail.

The wicked pest kept returning.

Now I am happy to report that there is a cure:

Adware Away.

No free trial - but it is easy as pie to use.

The about:blank trojan was killed in minutes.

 

Click "more" on Adware Away's menu.

Icons with names of various hijackers are displayed.

Click on those bothering you, and they're gone!!

 

Well worth the $25 price. In fact it also trashed

CoolWebSearch, Lycos SideSearch and IstBar -

trojans I didn't even know I had. All I can say,

"Adware Away is FANTASTIC".
