      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.

pop up ads

I'm trying to eliminate pop up ads on a computer, without success. I've run spybot, adaware and done some cleaning with HijackThis, but the pop ups continue. Here's the HijackThis log:

Being your first post - I get the honour and privilege of welcoming you to our corner of the world where spyware has met it's match - Welcome. :)

First - Create a new folder C:\HJT and move the HijackThis.exe file into that folder and only run it from there.

 

Close all programs/windows, run HijackThis and delete:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {339BB23F-A864-48C0-A59F-29EA915965EC} - (no file)

Reboot, sign on and post a new HijackThis log into this message so that we can analyze further.

PGPhantom - Thanks for the welcome and the advice. I have done as you asked. After I rebooted and opened IE to log in, an ad popped up. So there's something still infecting this computer. Here is the new log:

The only additional suggestion from your log is to delete all the O16 entries. Deleting them will not harm anything and if it is something that you need, the next time you visit the site, it will be downloaded again.

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster and SpyWareGuard and IE/Spyad.

 

SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard are by JavaCool and both are free programs. SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed and consumes no system resources. SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.

 

More info and download is available at:

Spywareblaster

Spywareguard

 

IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will several impair attempts to infect your system. It is free.

 

More info and download is available at:

IE/Spyad

 

On a regular basis - Use Ad-Aware to check your system for any and all infections => How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware

 

I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recyle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.

 

You may want to get the Google Toolbaar as it has a free pop-up stopper that works quite well.
