      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.

You should be fine as far as security goes..this one seemed to more of just a Hijacker than a Data-robber......Any time is a good time to install Firefox...

It look like there is probably a fix that will work for you...I will post it in about 18 hr when I get home from work...may have time to do it in the AM but I'm not holding my breath. Got a current HijackThis for me please??

OnTiMe....Well they have devised a fix for the About:Blank that you HAD, well see if it works for your 'partialy removed' Hijacker...

 

Download this tool "About:Buster" from

Zeros Realms or

Suratam's

 

Unzip it to your desktop. Don't run it yet; just have it ready to go.

 

Now start Hijack this and tick the boxes next to these items..

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\fdbn.dll/sp.html (obfuscated)

 

Now close ALL OTHER windows and hit "fix checked".

 

Immediatly start about:buster and hit start. In the first white box; input this: res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\fdbn.dll/sp.html

 

Now hit ok. If you got an "Error Removing"; Find the file yourself and try to delete it.

 

Then startup Hijack this and tick the box next to the random 02 (randomname.dll)

(Not present in your log posted here but may return after running this.) If new HJT has no new "02- randomname.dll" (you remember them; you've checked enought of them in this ordeal. :grrr: ) then just continue on anyway.

Restart your computer and post the report and a new Hijack this log.

 

Don't get to disheartned if this fail to eliminate it...after all we only haev part of your Hijacker to work with; there are a couple of other means to try. This is the simplest so we'll try it first.

 

keeping fingers crossed

:keybrd: I don't know if this helps you guys any. But I'm battling the same virus/adware on one of my computers. HijackThis takes care of the start page but not the auto search feature. For about 9 hours, the start page goes back.

 

:hmm: But I have now eliminated the returning of the start page, and now the search page if I monitor my system and delete the reoccurring .tmp file always by the same name of dbd2f16b.tmp on my hard drive. It reverts back to msn search, you may have to close the browser and restart but this takes care of the issue for a 12 hours. Closing and reopening the browser seems to restart it.

 

:scratchhead: Is there anyone who knows how to read .tmp files, all I see is a bunch of symbols mixed with text? Is there a way to trace the file to an .exe or .dll file. I’m trying Filemon to see if it tells me now since I’m deleted the dbd2f16b.tmp if it will show a program writing a new one. I’ve all so searched the registry and haven’t found any mention of the file. It also writes that blasted sp.html file. But since deleting the .tmp file it hasn’t tried to retake the browser start, just the search when it renews. I delete it and it’s fine for another 9 – 12 hours. Hope that helps, and I hope you can tell me how to read these symbols in the .tmp files? :huh:
