      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.

It is more about money than it is about fun anyway...

 

I just read an article/interview with the guy that is responsible for a huge amount of SPAM... It was noted that he is making something like $20million a year by SPAMming people... If only takes a small percentage to respond to make money on almost anything since we pay for these sleazeballs ot send email SPAM...

 

With adware, spyware, trojans and so forth, it is mostly about making money on porn, viagra, breast enlargement and other fanstasies that people seem to be gullible enough to buy and scam like identity theft and using your computer to send SPAM without your knowledge...

 

There are a few rageful individuals out there doing this to hurt people and get bragging rights with their rageful online friends, but most people are just trying a make a few million dishonest bucks.... :rant:

I guess I'm in the same boat as others. I posted on July 7, and not received any replies. Since then I've downloaded CWShredder and run it twice - each time it found something, but the problem recurred anyway. Also, each time I was asked about c:\WINNT\GWMDMU.EXE I replied no because I don't know what it is, and it doesn't look random to me - I've seen it in JHT files since the 7th.

 

I'm going to try to BUMP my original post, if it's clear how to do that

Hi there,

 

Just posting a link to my thread originally started on July 8th. It's not an emergency so no hurry, just letting you know it's there and the info on what Ad-Aware finds may be useful. Thanks again for all your help which restores my faith in human nature (which had been severly battered by the antics of Spyware companies!)

Please forgive me if I'm posting here too early. I have been waiting since July 10th, and I know others have been waiting longer. The CWS.searchx on my computer is creating problems for our business (comprised of three humans and one dog) so I am posting here to be sure we don't get totally lost in the crowd. I can process orders again, but I have to run CWShredder, Spybot, and Adaware five or six times a day to do so. Yikes.

 

We want all the hardworking volunteers to know we appreciate your efforts. If I could, I'd deliver donuts and coffee. Instead we'll just keep donating to support the forum, and we'll be waiting here when somebody gets to our name on the list. THANK YOU in advance, we do appreciate you!

 

Here is my post from July 10th:

Hello!

 

A friend of mine told me about this site and I decided to turn to you folks for help! I hope you can view my post. There are just a few lines in the Hijack This log that look unfamiliar but I am scared to fix it myself.

 

Thank you for any help!

It's been 6 days since my log posting. Is there anyone that can assist me? :weep:

Hi. I hope someone can help. I started a thread on 11th July about a browser hijack, I've had no response and now I can't even find the thread, it seems to have been removed?

 

My pc is getting slower and slower with more and more "only the best" pop-ups. Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

there are many,, many referrences to providing a link to your post. There are numerous posts detailing how to do this - PLEASE, provide a link to your post if you would like help ... There are far too many cases waiting for help to waste time searching for posts.

Hi

 

I tried this earlier but the post seems to have gone somewhere else.

 

Hope this doesn't seem impatient, only I've had my thread posted for 7 days now with no replies. I've bumped it a few times. Perhaps the original was too long and I should re-post a more concise one?

 

I'm new to this and have only posted this one thread. Any help would be much appreciated

 

My thread can be found here

Well, I really didn't want to post here but my original post continues to fall into the dark without a reply. So maybe someone will see this and can offer some help...I hope. My original post was from July 7th and I have never "bumped" it and tried to follow the rules. If there is something I did wrong or left out of the original post, just point it out and I'll correct the post and get in line again.

 

If you can help me...THANK YOU so much!!!

I Posted on July 15th and I got one reply but it didn't help, and I've been waiting ever since, hoping someone could help, but no one has. It's nothing serious, but it's been really annoying having my home page reset. I was just hoping I could get a little help soon.

Hello folks,

Well I've been on these forums the whole day waiting for someone to help me...my post has had just over 100 views and 20 replies but about 17 are from me as the problem is getting far worse but no-one has looked over my hijackThis log file or files I should say. I remember the last time I came on here for help and 'meeeeeeee' done an incredible job in regards to fixing my problem. Please someone just give me a sign of life this time around! :unsure:

Ponte,

 

I suggest you look around a little bit... You will notice that many people have been waiting weeks, not just a few hours... Our volunteers are overworked trying to keep up and we are trying to keep their morale up so that they don't just decide it is too much and give up... Unfortunately, a number already have and that just makes it harder for the rest of us to keep up.... I believe you are desperate to get help, but again, if you look around you will see that is true of almost everyone that posted a log...

 

To everyone,

 

While you are waiting for help it is a good idea to read some of the articles about protection and to do what you can to SAFELY remove the malware that you can identify... If you are not SURE that you know what is bad, leave it and wait... If you do make changes, download the latest version of HJT (1.98.1) and post a fresh log in your CURRENT thread to save time when you do get help... Do NOT start a new thread unless you want to wait even longer...

 

We are working as hard as we can for free, please keep that in mind....

Hello. I posted about my problem on July 24th, got a bunch of helpful responses, but, unfortunately, we weren't successful in completely getting rid of the spyware. Then a couple weeks went by, and nothing. That's okay, though, I can appreciate how busy you guys are. Today I've updated my post with a new HT log. It's here:

My original post was on 7/21 and I got a response on the same day asking that I be patient as they were a trainee and needed some extra time to review. No problem. But, not it's 8/9 and I haven't heard anything. Any suggestions? I have received some great assistance from this site in the past! Thanks for your help.

I submitted a problem 12 days ago on 30 July about 02:09 pm and I have not received an answer yet. It is not critical yet, the computer seems to be working aright at the moment. However, I would like to get rid of these Coolweb problems. CWShredder will not touch them. Thanks. Hi_Zee13

Hi folks, I don't mean to sound pushy, but I am going on holiday next friday AM (GMT), for two weeks. If someone could take

a look at my problem before then it would be a big help. If that is not possible then anyone who does wish to help, could you

remember that I will be away and dont get too angry if I don't reply right away.

 

I have also posted an updated HJT log.

Hi,

I would really be very grateful if someone could take a look at my problem. It's been about 2 days since I posted.

Now, my computer freezes after startup before I do anything in addition to when running media player and IE. Once my computer freezes, my computer won't start normally unless I pull the plug from my computer and that only sometimes fixes the boot problem.

I'm completely frustrated since this has basically made my computer unusable. Thanks for all your help.

Please accept my sincere apologies but I have duplicated a thread that I placed yesterday thinking that I may have fallen off the list as I had not heard from anyone. It is only now, after reading this thread that I realise that a several day wait is normal.

I do not intend to 'clog' your forum with unecessary threads and apologise if I have done so.

I also noted that in my first post, part of my logfile was missing so please feel free to delete this post if you wish, and once again - please accept my apologies.
