      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'm a novice with this but I went through the log and spotted this:

 

R3 - URLSearchHook: iSearch Toolbar - {1C78AB3F-A857-482e-80C0-3A1E5238A565} - C:\WINDOWS\System32\toolbar.dll

 

It refers specifically to ISEARCH which is the program haunting me. can i check this item off and hit fix in HTJ?

I had the same problem you had with ie-search, after two weks of trying to gt rid of it with no success, I switched over to Opera as a web browser it is free and in the links if you read the first QA or the preventing browser highjacking.

 

It is one of the best things I did. I no longer get popups I shut down ad-aware I now surf the internet as I did 5 years ago in peace.

Thanks for the suggestion Aquaman, but I feel like I'm pretty much married to ie. Maybe its just brainwashing... In any event, do you know if I check isearch in HTJ and hit fix if it will cause any system problems for me?

I was tha same as you I wanted to have IE fixed also, but after two weeks of trying to repair it I gave up. The reason it is better to switch to the other browser is that most all of the jackers write code for IE because it is used the most, so thaey can do the most damage there. You can download Opera and try it with out changing anything in IE just open opera to surf for a while. I have Opera on one machine and IE on another. It took about 2 days to get used to Opera and now some of the things are better. (e-mail direct from browser, and open windows are much easier to manage).

 

As far as checking things you can usually check anything with search, home page in it.

 

It did no good for me it just kept coming back.

 

Good luck
