      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 am about to quit my job, but want to clean up my laptop that I have to turn in to the company before I do! Please help!

 

Here is the hijack log. I have run cwshredder, adaware, spybot, pepper uninstaller and have even burned a couple virgins, nothing seems to help.

24 hour bump. It also seems to want to install windows xp, and it is preventing me from logging onto spywareinfo.com directly.

 

Thanks again in advance for any help.

48 hours and still no solution bump.

 

It took me a couple of hours just to get to this forum, this thing is killing me. - I am literally about to destroy my harddrive then turn it in to the company, better that than having them see all these popups.

PGPhantom - Thank you very kindly for your help - you guys amaze me you truly do. Major karma points awarded.

 

-Now, I did all that you asked, and I must admit, before I saw your post I pretty much went kill crazy myself - figured what can I loose. So I compared my machine to another that had no problems, and zapped anything that looked different in hijack log -

 

Now, your killbox link would not work for me, but I did delete the aqntz.dll

 

 

-other things I deleted that you did not suggest were:

(all of these are in the winnt/system32 folder)

stisvc.exe

mspmspsv.exe (and a .dll with the same name)

sdktv32.exe

and under winnt folder I killed ntow.dll

 

 

I am to nervous to say I am no longer inficted, but here is the log.

Let me know if additional steps are needed, and if I did anything really bad by pretty much killing everthing that hijack threw my way....

Bad idea ... You machine may not work. Please stop following all the recommendations from people that do not know what they are doing. Run HijackThis, click on Config, then on backups and restore everything. Post a new Hijackthis log after and I will give you additional instructions.

 

AGAIN - Please stop following advice from anyone except helpers, experts, mods etc.
