      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.

Google and other sites will not load

22 posts in this topic

Sorry guys,

I'm sure this has been covered before but I can't seem to get the search function to work or load.

 

My computer will not load any google related sites as well as random other sites. I have run Spybot S&D as well as Ad-Aware. I was wondering if you guys could give me some help on locating the problem. Thanks in advance and sorry for what I'm sure is a duplicated post.

I do not see anything in your log I would expect to cause the problem you describe.

 

Can you give me more information about the problem. When you go to try to go to www.google.com what exactly happens?

Well when getting on any site related to google, the page simply doesn't load... It sits on the previous page and eventually stops trying to load.

 

On a side note: On other sites that my computer will not load, the bar on the bottom of IE explorer which contains the bar showing the progress of loading any page.

This bar at the bottom on the left(where the site being downloaded is usually shown) will show some site called "www.google-analytics.com". I dont know if I can't load these pages because they contain something from google or what that has to do with my problem.

Lets take a look and see if there is evidence of that infection or other similar infections.

 

 

[*] Download: Hoster.

  • Unzip hoster to its own folder, eg C:\Hoster
  • Start Hoster.exe, click Copy Hosts file to Clipboard
  • Click Add Reply in this thread, then right click in the text window and choose Paste.

Try this...

 

Open hoster again and copy/paste the following line into the Add to Hosts file text box on the right:

 

127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com

 

 

Then click Add to Hosts file.

 

Reboot and try to get to those sites. Let me know what happens this time.
