      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.

Well, my post is going on 3 days without a reply. I'd really like to get this cleared up tonight if I can because I won't be able to get to my computer for a week by tomorrow. I've tried everything I can think of and removed an awful lot in the last 3 days and the problem persists. I really don't want to bump my post again, but once it falls to like the 10th page, I'm thinking it's probably not going to get seen. Much thanks if I can get some help, otherwise I guess I'll be back in a week. :D

I've been waiting for 5 days and like some of the other poor souls just want to make sure I haven't fallen in the cracks.

 

I did post an addendum to my first post (in the same thread), so now it looks like I have a response.

 

the link to my first post is:

 

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?sh...indpost&p=33394

 

I'm getting to the point now where I think I may have to re-install Windows, since the highjacker has taken control over IE, NotePad, System Restore, and generally seems to be bogging down the whole system (I keep getting messages that virtual memory is too low), in spite of all the things I've tried according to the suggestions in the FAQs and other posts. But I still have hope that some kind soul will help me with this problem.

I too have been waiting 4 days or so with no answer. I haven't even got many views for my post. I am aware now that i was wrong to add a new topic instead of just replying to my old one. I added a new topic b/c i recently was finally able to get to a damn website other than this one and run an online scan. If anyone wants to try and give it a shot and help me it will be really appreciated.

Hi,

Hi guys,

 

I know you are extremely busy, but would you let me know if you will be getting around to me soon. My problem is unique in that I cannot download HJT to even try to find out what is going on. I know the problem is unusual and hardly anyone is even looking at my post (I posted 6 days ago), but I am appreciative of any and all help. I am trying to take IE off, but even that isn't going so well! Thanks a bunch for your help.

 

 

Smokescreen

 

Without the ability to download there is little we can do. Is it just HJT you cannot download, or all programs? If just HJT, then tryAdAware and Spybot. Ca n you get fiend to dl HJT and put it on a diskette for you??

 

If you have a post -- please supply the link: lpp

Hi all,

 

I realise you must be snowed under at the moment with the current rash of hijacks. Please know your time and help is very much appreciated.

 

I'm hijacked by About:Blank and posted my Topic 5 days ago but unfortunately, nobody has yet had a chance to reply. My original Topic with HJT log is here....

 

Original Topic Here

 

I don't want to appear impatient but am not sure what to do since the re-post Topics are locked and Bumping is a bit cheeky!!

 

Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Hey. I've been waiting 4 days to hear back about my problem. I know it's not that long to wait I am just worried that I have some kind of tunnel to my computer open for people to keylog or something. I posted the problem in two forums, PC Troubleshooting, and Malware removal, because I didn't know which area would be better. The malware removal post is probably a better one to approach. Any help will be appreciated, and I can answer any follow up questions a support person might have.

It's been 5 days since my request for help. Did I not do something that was required?

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?sh...indpost&p=36738

 

I understand how busy everyone is but I just don't get the reply logic. If the oldest posts are suppose to be worked first, how come I see so many old ones with 0 replies? Do the helpers just skip over and pick the ones they think they can fix? I feel that if I don't keep inquiring my request will be totally lost as newer problems come in by the minute.

 

Sorry for venting but I've spent more time on this site just monitoring my post to see if there have been any replies. I've read a lot of what seems to be good help, but I don't even know where to begin on my own. It seems as if there could be a number of things wrong.

 

I really hope I get a response otherwise my sister will have to pay some big bucks for someone to fix her computer.

 

Kudos to all the volunteers on this website. These spyware and adware scums need to be stopped.

I have noticed something that might help to explain why my computer locks up.

Here is the link for my first request for help:

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?sh...indpost&p=35208

 

Now there are times that when I am using my comuter a small window appears at the lower right of my screen. It has the logo for Intenet explorer and a w with a blank screen. When this appears my computer locks up. I don't know if this bit of info is helpful in solving my problem but I thought I would pass it on.

Hello,

 

Could you please look at my post (posted on 6/27):

 

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?showtopic=10825

 

I have been getting too many virus infected files from the ezsys.exe application. I have McAfee Enterprise anti-virus installed and it detects these viruses. But I want to get rid of it from the source.

 

I have removed look2me but still have wintools and ezula and can't get rid of them.

 

Your help is appreciated. Let me know if you think I shoud bump my post.

 

Thanks!

I posted my first HJT log on 6-25 re CWS. Since then I believe that I have 95% eliminated the thing with the BobO method. However, I would really like to have someone take a quik look at my post clean-up log, particularly suspicious entries R1 HomeOlsSP, the 02s, and 03 shdocv.dll (that I think is Tiny Bar; if, so how do I deal with that?). I don't mean to complain about waiting, but I feel that I am close to a solution and just need a couple of minutes. this is a terrific board. Thanks for the help.

Reg,

 

If you look at the huge sign at the top of every page in this forum and even at the top of the Reply page where you posted this log it says: DO NOT POST YOUR LOG FILE INTO SOMEONE ELSE'S TOPIC! START YOUR OWN.Please stay with your original topic when posting follow up log files.

Hi Lpp,

 

I am totally suzie homemaker trying to work on this problem, so that being said pls. bear with me. I hope I am giving you the correct link to my original post:

 

http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php?ac...DE=03&MID=10281

 

Basically, I cannot download anything I click on, and when I try I am redirected to www.searchpage.cc.

 

I am sure I can get someone to download hjt onto a diskette for me, it will take a day or two, but I can get it done. When I run spybot, it says I have a common hijacker, but I cannot totally eradicate the problem. I use McAfee and presently have spyblaster on the system also.

 

I will wait on your response, thank you so much.

Hi...

 

I posted my original log on the 23rd, so that would be waiting for 7 days.

 

I am aware that the staff here is swamped, and I don't want to make a pest of myself. Suffice to say, I think it would be easier just to mention it here rather than trying to get a response for my original thread.

 

I think I have the majority of it beaten. I have followed all the directions and the updated adaware seems to have fixed things.

 

Unfortunately, Hijack This still finds some things that make me nervous. There are several entries with random letters(dqikjczm.exe for example) which I do not recognize at all.

 

I just hope someone could take a look even if it is just to tell me what exactly it is I have so I could go looking for a fix for the specific problem.

 

Here is a link to my thread:

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

It's been a week since i've posted my problem concerning my about:blank infection. It seems like i've really gotten lost in the shuffle. I know you all are super busy, and i don't want to be a pest. Thanks so much for all of your hard work and dedication.

Hey, I don't want to argue about petty things because I really appreciate the help and probably should be more patient, but my last contact with LoPhat was last night (6/30 at 12:13 AM to be exact) and I was just waiting for a final check. I did post two updated HJT logs since then, but the last one was today at 10:04 AM (as in the morning). Maybe I am not the only one who should show some patience and understanding. Anyway, thanks for the help. This is a great board. And, I apologize if I caused anyone undue distress.

The response you all are able to provide is amazing.. Funny how volunteer workers seem to be so much more efficient and friendly than people that are actually paid to work.. No rush - it's not even my computer - it's a coworkers, but I just wanted to make sure it wasn't missed - it's unbelievable the volume of requests you guys/gals take care of..

THANK YOU GUYS FOR ALL YOUR FREE HELP! I realize you're not getting paid for helping any of us. I just want to give you the credit you deserve.

 

I've been able to prevent some disgusting pop ups from appearing, but I still keep getting that About:Search crap. I did this with the help of your FAQ's and the programs you suggested. However, within hours of "disinfecting" that stupid about search shows up again.

 

I put up a log file up in the correct forum 18 days ago and have been waiting patiently. Is there anyone that can help me? Here is the link to the thread:
