      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.

pls help. I read through the faq and the related file, did everything accordingly(incl. scanning with spybot and trying to fix with ht), and still didn't get rid of whatever redirects my startpage to res://... also, the browser has become very slow as if some programs were running. tried to find a topic on the the same problem, but couldn't (if there's one, pls tell.) i'd appreciate any help a great deal, really.

this is driving me nuts. spent all day checking out a number of similar topics, did the stuff recommended when applicable (made all files and folders visible, deleted suspicious .exe and .dll-s, cleared all temp and other temporary file folders, fixed registry keys, ran ht, ad-aware, cwshredder and spybot in the advised order, everything looked good, and then the stuff came back after restart. several times. feels like someone is playing a nasty game with me to test my tolerance. although I know there are no little mischiefs living in my computer, I keep the hammer handy.

Think u have same as I have try scaning with www.pestpatrol.com

 

Pest patrol flagged that I had WurldMedia

 

 

By the sounds of it sounds like exactly what I have /plus you have done what I have done to try to resolve problem.

 

I've posted a help file so guess we can wait till someone can help us

yes, it looks like mine is similar to the latest pest commonly known as something like "cws res://<random>.dll/sp.html#96676 hijacker", with the difference that mine ends 37049. otherwise it's the same, i get the popups, and no matter what I do, my browser gets hijacked again and again. i also tried the workaround suggested by merijn:

 

Open the DLL you get hijacked to in Notepad

Select all content (Ctrl-A) and delete it

Save the file and exit Notepad

Find the file in Explorer, right-click it, select Properties, put a checkmark in 'Read-Only' and click OK.

 

the browser is still hijacked, but i get "page not found", as the dll's content has been erased...

mikigabi,

I was out of town for a few days, but I did what Chris and Daniel suggest and it worked great (at least I'm still free of the pest after one day). I wonder though, if I can get rid of 'Network Security Service' entirely. Since it is disabled, it cannot do any harm obviously, and I deleted the file it would be running if it was enabled (C:\WINDOWS\netaz.exe) anyway, but its name is still listed under the services... I also wonder if it is possible at all to write a software (e.g. an update for CWShredder) to fix such a randomly self-regenerating hijacker. Thanks for the help everyone.
