      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.

I see the icon for it also in the system tray but then when I go to rest the cursor on it, it too disappears. ALSO...I have tried to Run/Regedit but regedit does not come up (again it looks like something flashes quickly on the screen but I cannot fire up REGEDIT) here is some info...please advise what can I do?

 

I've run adaware and spybot search and destroy..and here is a hijack this log:

Well usually when TaskManager and regedit have been disabled

by trojanZzz, third-party substitutes still work and do a better job anyway ;)

 

http://www.resplendence.com/reglite

http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml

 

Run process explorer, find:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\YAHOOMSG.EXE

RightClick and 'kill it'.

 

Find 'YAHOOMSG.' in System32 folder zip it up and submit

it by clicking on the 'submit' tab in my signature!

Delete it and it's copy,

(That's not 'yahoo' but an evil imposter...)

 

Follow up by fixing in hijackthis:

*O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [Yahoo Messenger] YAHOOMSG.EXE

*O8 - Extra context menu item: LimeShop Preferences - file://C:\Program Files\LimeShop\System\Temp\limeshop_script0.htm

 

Highly recommended you'd get rid of 'LimeShop'! Full of bundlew@re!

 

Good luck!

Hello,

I have the same problem... sorry, probably I don't understand correctly what to do. I am not able to find any "YAHOOMSG" etc... on my laptop.

As you (probably) know, many other applications do not work.

Please, help... sigh! Ciao,

Luis
