      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.

Redirected when I try to download HJT

2 posts in this topic

Unfortunately my system has been hijacked to the point that I cannot download HJT or the google toolbar w/o being redirected to some obscure browser searchpage.cc, also, when trying to load certain pages my system is redirected to nkvd.us. nkvd.us has also put itself in front of the name of some urls. I am trying to take all the necessary steps, however I cannot get past the initial steps bc I cannot get to HJT. I run spypot regularly and it continually tells me that I have a common hijacker, that has changed prefixes. I have looked at my registry and can see where home and mosaic have a numbers and other signs in back of them. Also a new common spyware now showing up is delfin project. I am a true novice so I hope I have explained this to enough for someone to help. Thank you.

There is not much we can do wiithout a HiJackTHis log.

 

If you have a freind that can download it for you, put it on a diskette and then on to your computer.

 

One thing you can try first, is to delete your Hosts file. Search for 'hosts' (it has extension) and when you find it, delete it. Then see if that help at all. I most likely will no be of great help, but unless you have custom entries in it, it is of no harm.

 

I will wait for your HiJackThis log. Post it in this thread please.
